Placement of the dental implant has become a popular option for oral rehabilitation in edentulous patients. The inter-foraminal area of the anterior mandible has become the elective area for the placement of implants. This area is also prone to vascular accidents because of the rich vascular anastomoses that supply this area. We present a case of slight perforation of one of the implants during surgery which just missed the sublingual branch. It was followed for a period of one year and no relevant complications were seen.
