The mandibular nerve is the 3rd branch of the trigeminal nerve, the 5th of only 10 cranial nerves of the brain.

One of the gold medals was given for the patent for the mixture of propolis and an acrylic resin, that which is made thermoplastic.

The ramifications and potential future applications to these developments are immense, and may even prove to be a cure for trigeminal neuralgia.
