The probability of nerve injury is increased in third molar surgery in the following cases: A) Cases in which the mandibular canal is curved when the root ends are superimposed with the canal. B) Cases in which the root is darkened when superimposed with the canal. C) Cases in which the white contours of the canal disappear when the root is superimposed with the canal.

This is a series of 3 figures (figures A, B, and C). Figures B and C can be found by scrolling downwards.

Figure A. The mandibular canal is curved when the root ends are superimposed with the canal.

Figure B. Part of the root is darkened when superimposed with the canal.

Figure C. The contours of the canal disappear when superimposed with the tooth.
