Origin

The incisive vein is formed by the union of small veins arising in the roots and pulp of the incisor teeth of the mandible.

Course

The incisive vein descends within the mandibular canal, accompanied by the terminal end of the inferior alveolar nerve and the incisive branch of the inferior alveolar artery. It joins with the mental vein, thus forming the inferior alveolar vein.

Tributaries

There are no named tributaries.

Structures Drained

The incisive vein drains the incisive teeth of the lower jaw.
