The following manuscript attempts to unravel the anatomic variations which are ascertained via imaging and clinical co-relational findings exhibiting the intricate presence of complex network of neurovascular plexus / nutrient canal plexus presumably pointing out to the ascribing factors which could have led to repeated failure of dental anaesthesia and extended bleeding during dental extractions in the past as documented in the patient’s dental history. The cognizance of such distinctive anatomic intricacies is of immense clinical importance to the oral maxillofacial surgeons before proceeding with any interventional surgeries in the head and neck region.
