Most dentigerous rankles are asymptomatic, and their revelation is typically a fortuitous finding on radiography. The standard radiographic appearance is that of an especially separated radiolucent sore joined at an extraordinary point to the cervical zone of an unerupted tooth. The edge of the damage may be radiopaque.
In dental radiographs, radiopaque lesions of the jawbones are a great part of the time experienced. A variety of conditions, for instance, fibrosseous injuries and odontogenic tumors can appear as radiopaque sores on the jawbones.
Fibro osseous lesions
Maxillofacial fibro-bony lesions (FOL) comprises of sores that vary, except for sinewy dysplasia, to those found in whatever is left of the skeleton. FOLs of the face and jaws are cemento-solidifying dysplasia, sinewy dysplasia and cemento-hardening fibroma.
Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia
It is a sub type of cemento-osseous dysplasia. It is a rare condition presenting in the jaw refers to a group of fibro-osseous (cemental) exuberant lesions with multi-quadrant involvement.
Radiographically, florid cemento-osseous dysplasia is characterised by multiple masses of mixed radiopaque structures. The may have a circumferential radiolucency, primarily surrounding the root apices of vital teeth, and over time with the maturation of the lesions they tend to become increasingly radiopaque.
Fibrous dysplasia (FD)
is a non-neoplastic tumor-like innate process, showed as a confined deformity in osteoblastic separation and development, with the supplanting of ordinary bone with extensive stringy stroma and islands of youthful woven bone. Sinewy dysplasia has a fluctuated radiographic appearance going from radiolucency to sclerosis.
Cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF)
are uncommon, amiable neoplasms that normally emerge from the mandible or maxilla. They regularly emerge from the tooth bearing zones of these bones. Generally, all around surrounded masses which grow the hidden bone. They are generally little yet can turn out to be huge. This is especially the situation when they emerge from the maxilla or paranasal sinuses on the grounds that there is more space to extend 1-3. They are at first lucent on x-beams.
Odontogenic tumors (OT) are a gathering of heterogeneous lesions got from epithelial or ectomesenchymal tissues or both, which are a piece of the tooth-framing contraption. They run from hamartomatous or non-neoplastic tissue expansions to threatening neoplasms with metastatic limit. They are prevalently radiolucent.
