tissues after odontogenesis is complete, and from these remnants a variety of tumors and cysts might possibly arise (1). Odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) generally occur as a multilocular or unilocular radiolucency, often in a dentigerous relationship (2). While the most common occurrence location is the posterior portion of the mandible or the mandibular ramus, other locations have also been reported, such as the anterior portion of the maxilla, the maxillary sinus and the maxillary third molar…

A radiologic analysis of dentigerous cysts and odontogenic keratocysts associated with a mandibular third molar.

The OKCs had a tendency toward rapid growth in the patient's youth but short movement of a third molar compared with the DCs, and there was a significant correlation between the area and distance in the DC and OKC groups.
