Bone diseases in the jaw

Dr. Armando Torres Castillo

Bone diseases in the jaw

There can occur a number of diseases in the jaw, both benign and malignant. Many of them are derived from leftover remnants of teeth.
Below we present several cases of maxillary bone diseases treated by Dr. Armando Torres Castillo.

Patient case with Fibro-osseous dysplasia

Displasia fibro-ósea

Fibromyxoma (soft tissue tumor) associated with a wisdom tooth

Keratocyst (cutaneous cyst) associated with a wisdom tooth

As noted in previous cases the keratocyst is benign, yet very aggressive.

 

Odontogenic myxoma

MIXOMA ODONTOGÉNICO

Compound Odontoma

ODONTOMA COMPUESTO - CIRUJANO MAXILOFACIAL CDMX

Traumatic Bone Cyst

Osteoma: bone hyperdensity

In the last case the wisdom tooth (‘third molar’) is in a bad position, preventing the placement of crowns on adjacent teeth.

Dentigerous Cyst (or follicular cyst)

Periapical Cyst (at the root of the tooth)

The periapical cyst is the most common cyst to present in the jaw. It is associated with dental cavities, a poorly performed endodontic procedure or a poorly or badly performed root canal. This creates a cyst in the tooth root that grows slowly and leads to bone destruction, as shown in the example. The relevant bone reconstruction can be seen below in the fourth image.
