Significant differences were found in the analysis of measurement and position of the mandibular canal in relation to gender that can be caused by multiple factors such as hormone and masticatory muscle tension. The aim of this study was to understand the difference in measurement and position of the mandibular canal in relation to gender at the age of 17-20 years. The type of this study is observational analysis with 50 samples consisting of 25 male and 25 female subjects. Analysis was done using unpaired T-test with a confidence interval of 95% whereby significance was obtained when p<0.05. the result was the mean value of the vertical linear measurements of the left mandibular canal showed that measurements D1, D2, D4, D5, D6 and D7 was larger in male compared to female, but measurements D3 was larger in female compared to male. The mean value of ratios R! and R2 was larger in female while R3 was shown larger in males. The most frequent position of the mandibular canal showed a relation of proximity to the roots of the mandibular third molar. This concluded that there is a significant difference found in vertical linear measurements D1, D2, D4, D5, D6 and D7 of the mandibular canal but there is no significant difference in position of the mandibular canal in relation to gender.
