de Souza JG, Claus JD, Ouriques FD, Gil LF, Gil JN, Cardoso AC, Bianchini MA - Case Rep Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: The surgical treatment is preferably done by surgical resection of the lesion, resulting in a great loss of tissue and esthetics.Multidisciplinary planning is required for the rehabilitation of these cases.Autogenous grafting techniques or vascularized flaps allow ridge reconstruction for implant placement, restoring function, and esthetics.

ABSTRACT
The most aggressive diseases that affect the oral environment are considered tumors of the jaw. The surgical treatment is preferably done by surgical resection of the lesion, resulting in a great loss of tissue and esthetics. Multidisciplinary planning is required for the rehabilitation of these cases. Autogenous grafting techniques or vascularized flaps allow ridge reconstruction for implant placement, restoring function, and esthetics. This paper reports a 6-year follow-up case of an odontogenic myxoma treated with wide resection and mandibular bone reconstruction for posterior rehabilitation with dental implants.

Mentions: The patient underwent segmental mandibulectomy, under general anesthesia, from the left ramus to the symphysis, by a surgical resection including a safety margin of 1.5 cm (Figures 3 and 4). The patient was followed up with clinical and radiographic control (Figure 5).
