Kiefer Tumors

Many benign tumors such as malignant originate in the jaw. Symptoms swelling, pain, tenderness and an inexplicable tooth mobility may occur; Some tumors are first discovered during a routine X-ray examination of the teeth, while others are discovered during a routine examination of the oral cavity and teeth. The therapy depends on the seat and tumor type. Benign tumors can be observed and do not require surgical excision, although most tumors require a resection with possible reconstruction.

If they are not detected right at the X-ray, jaw tumors are clinically diagnosed as soon as their growth to swelling of the face, in the mouth or on the alveolar ridges (periodontal ligaments of the jaw) results. You can also cause increased pressure sensitivity and strong jaw pain.

You can also cause increased pressure sensitivity and strong jaw pain. On the palate, or mandible (palatal torus, torus mandibular) can develop bony growths. These frequent growths can cause worry for cancer, although they are benign and only cause problems if they interfere with the dental care or impair the function of the submandibular gland. When they occur on the palate, they are in the center line and have an intact, smooth mucosa. The most common tumor of the mandible and maxilla is squamous, the invasive grows through the tooth socket in the bone. It can be affected every part of the intraoral upper or lower jaw. The most frequent odontogenic epithelial tumor creates a Ameloblastoma mostly in the rear jaw. It grows slowly invasive and rarely metastasize. Typical is his appearance on X-rays; with the multi-chamber radiolucency it resembles soap bubbles. The treatment consists in spacious surgical excision and possibly reconstruction. The most common odontogenic tumor is a odontoma, can affect the dental follicle or dental tissue and usually develops in the lower jaw of younger patients. Among the odontomas include fibrous odontomas and Zementome. Clinically also a missing molar tooth can speak for a composite odontoma. Typically, these tumors are excised, especially in dubious diagnosis. Osteosarcoma, giant cell and Ewing tumors, multiple myeloma, and tumor metastasis can also occur in the jaw and the same treatment as tumors in other bones.
