Remove tumors and tumor-like formations of jaws

For tumor-like formations are jaw cysts, osteodysplasia and osteodystrophy.

Jaw cysts include:

- odontogenic:

•         radicular;

•         follicular;

•         paradental;

•         epidermoid;

- non-odontogenic (fissural):

•         naso-palatinal (of incisive canal);

•         globule-maxillary;

•         naso-alveolar.

Cysts of the jaws have different origin, grow slowly and painlessly, causing atrophy of the surrounding bone. Sometimes can be a random finding on radiography jaws. Cysts can reach large sizes, causing deformation of the face. Upper jaw cysts can grow into the maxillary sinus and the lower nasal passage. Each cyst has its clinical features and surgery treatment. All cysts may suppurate.

Osteodysplasia - is a congenital malformation of the bone. Has different symptoms.

Osteodysplasia include: fibrous osteodysplasia; deforming ostosis (Paget's disease); cherubism; Albright's disease; Franceschetti-Tsvalen syndrome; Peters-Hevels syndrome; Crouzon syndrome, and others.

Osteodystrophy - a pathological process characterized by functional and structural changes of several sections of the skeleton, caused by the impairment of the trophic bone. By reason of it is toxic, nutritional, endocrine, angioneyrotrophical.

Benign tumors of the jaw, depending on the origin are divided into:

•         Odontogenic:

•       odontoma;

•       cementoma;

•       ameloblastoma (adamantinoma).

•         Osteogenic:

•       osteoma;

•       osteoid-osteoma;

•       osteoblastoma;

•       ossificans fibroma;

•       chondroma;

•       osteochondroma.

•         Connective tissue (fibroma).

•         Vascular (hemangioma), and others.

Clinical manifestations of benign tumors varied. Most often, they grow slowly and painlessly, causing deformation of the jaw. Many of them can become inflamed and / or malignant.

Radical treatment of jaw cysts is cystectomy - complete removal of the cyst membrane. When removing odontogenic cyst cystectomy may be accompanied by removal of the causative tooth or resection of its root. During germination of cysts of the maxillary sinus is carried oro-antral cystectomy.

Treatment of osteodysplasia is complicated. The volume of surgery is chosen individually. Often require multi-step operation.

Treatment of  оsteodystrophy is to eliminate the disease which caused it.

Treatment of benign tumors of jaw surgery. The volume of surgery depends on the type of tumor, its size, location, and is determined individually for each patient. In some cases, after removal of the tumor there is a need for bone grafting and for which the most commonly used titanium plates of various shapes.
