An head x-ray may be helpful in the diagnosis of ameloblastoma. Findings on an x-ray suggestive of ameloblastoma include polycystic, honeycombed mass arising within the alveolar border of the jaw.

X ray

An head x-ray may be helpful in the diagnosis of ameloblastoma. Findings on an x-ray suggestive ameloblastoma include:[1][2][3]

  • Lucency in the bone of varying size.
  • Well-demarcated lesion whereas it often demonstrates as a multiloculated "soap bubble" appearance.
  • Resorption of roots of involved teeth.
  • Ameloblastoma most often found in the posterior body and angle of the mandible.
  • Bony-impacted wisdom teeth.
  • Polycystic, honeycombed mass arising within the alveolar border of the jaw may suggest the diagnosis of ameloblastoma, but only a biopsy can confirm it.
