Tumors arise within the jaw bones and slowly expand within the jaw. This expansion causes a swelling to appear and then comes to your notice and may cause pain. Also the adjacent teeth may get displaced and will appear suddenly crooked or may become loose without any reason.
CASE 1 IMAGE 1 : Very missing tooth with expansion of jaw
CASE 1 IMAGE 2 : scan reveals extent of tumor
CASE 2 : Extensive tumor of lower jaw.
CASE 3 IMAGE 1 : Extensive tumor of lower jaw with wisdom tooth displaced high up within the jaw.
CASE 3 IMAGE 2 : Tumor removed with complete bone healing.
CASE 4 IMAGE 1 : tumor of lower jaw with wisdom tooth displaced up and nerve displaced down.
CASE 4 IMAGE 2 : Tumor removed with complete bone healing.
CASE 4 IMAGE 3 : Implants placed in the same area to replace teeth lost due to tumor.
The diagnosis is confirmed on an X-ray or CBCT scan and requires surgical removal from the jaw to prevent further jaw expansion and damage to adjacent teeth and important structures.
