Clinical  and Radiographic Findings

The clinical examination revealed a buccal swelling in the right posterior mandible involving teeth # 27 & 28 (Figs. 1& 2). This swelling obliterates the vestibule. The panoramic radiograph demonstrates a well-defined and partially corticated unilocular radiolucency between teeth #s 27 & 28. The teeth are mildly displaced and are vital.
