Ameloblastoma is one of the most frequent jaw tumors. It is a tumor that destroys tissue within the jaws and surrounding areas. It is exceedingly uncommon for it to spread to other parts of the body. Ameloblastomas tend to be locally aggressive within the jaws and if left untreated can result in significant issues for the person with the ameloblastoma. The treatment of ameloblastoma may require removal of a segment of jaw to treat appropriately which generally necessitates a combined reconstructive procedure. Our surgeons at the Oral Cancer Institute treat ameloblastoma frequently. Please contact one of our OCI surgeons to make an appointment for a consultation.
