Dolanmaz, Doğan; Etöz, Osman A.; Pampu, A. Alper; Kılıç, Erdem & Şişman, Yıldıray

Abstract

Stafne’s bone cavity (SBC) is asymptomatic radiolucent lesion of the lower jaw and generally seen incidentally during routine radiographic examinations. Diagnosis of this lesion is essential because of its similarity with other odontogenic pathologies. We present three cases of SBC which was firstly diagnosed with plain radiographs that were confirmed with dental computerized tomography. Asymptomatic radiolucent lesions of the mandible should be confirmed with advanced imaging techniques in order to avoid unnecessary surgery.

Keywords
