Abstract

Ameloblastoma is a benign odontogenic neoplasm which exhibits a locally aggressive behaviour. It commonly affects the mandible and seen in third to fifth decades of life. In most cases, an ameloblastoma is usually asymptomatic and may be detected during the course of routine radiographic examination. Radiographically, it may have a unilocular or multilocular appearance, which is usually well defined and have corticated margin in the mandible whereas ill-defined in case of maxilla. In this case series, we report 3 cases of ameloblastoma of the mandible.

Keywords: Ameloblastoma, mandible, Multilocular radiolucency, Bicortical expansion.
