For performing therapeutic procedures in these rodents' oral cavities, then, a local anaesthetic block of the inferior alveolar and mental nerves, is extremely useful. The purpose of this research was to outline the morphometry of the capybara's mandibular bone morphometry with a special reference for anatomic block of the inferior alveolar and mental nerves. In young and adult capybaras, the mandibular foramen had a dorsoventral diameter of 2. 1 mm, and 2. 2 mm in adult capybaras, and it was positioned ventrally to the third molar tooth. In another extraoral strategy, the needle should be introduced in young and 26. 3 mm in adult animals from the ventral margin of the capybara mandible. In capybaras, the results of this report indicate that the age group should be taken into account when performing the anaesthetic block of the inferior alveolar and mental nerves.
