Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji performed the clinical and radiological investigations. OPG and 3D CT scan showed a large radiolucent lesion extending from the lower left first molar teeth till right first premolar region. Almost entire bone in this portion of the lower jaw was lost.
Dr. Balaji successfully removed the cyst completely along with the affected teeth and bone. Rib graft was harvested and the used to reconstruct the jaw bone defect & the surgical site was closed. After subsequent healing, implants & ceramic crowns will be placed for fixed replacement of lost teeth.
