A canal within the mandible that contains the inferior alveolar nerve, inferior alveolar artery, and inferior alveolar vein. It runs obliquely downward and forward in the ramus, and then horizontally forward in the body, where it is placed under the alveoli and communicates with them by small openings [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandibular_canal ]

This is just here as a test because I lose it
