Ameloblastoma is a locally invasive epithelial tumor of odontogenic origin comprising 1% or less of the cystic lesions and tumors arising in the jaws. It is a lesion most commonly seen in the molar region of the mandibular ramus. Ameloblastomas can be both benign and malignant and this can be differentiated by certain unique morphological features. In the older histology nomenclature, the term “adamantinoma” was used instead of ameloblastoma. The chances of recurrence can be high or low depending upon the surgical management. Curettages are associated with high recurrence rates while wide local excision tends to reduce recurrences.
