Abstract

Ameloblastoma is a benign odontogenic tumor, usually affecting the posterior region of mandible. It is seen in the third to fifth decades of life. It is believed to arise from dental lamina remains, the enamel organ in development, epithelial cover of odontogenic cysts or from the cells of the basal layer of the oral mucosa. Its clinical presentation is that of an asymptomatic slowgrowing tumor. Despite being a benign tumor, it has an invasive behaviour with a high rate of recurrence if not treated properly.
