Routine panoramic radiographic evaluations reveal morphological differences in the maxillofacial structures, particularly the mandible. Although bifid condyle variants are prevalent, bifid coronoid processes are rarely reported. Here a regular digital Orthopantomograph (OPG) was advised for the patient’s routine dental care, which revealed the presence of a unilateral bifid coronoid process on the right side of the jaw, which was confirmed with Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). This is notable, because it is only the second incidence of its kind to be documented.
