Abstract

Introduction: Odontoma is the most common odontogenic, non cystic lesion of the jaw. Surgical enucleation is the treatment of this lesion, which often in more extensive lesions, the operation is performed under general anesthesia. The purpose of this report was to assess the possibility of surgery for major lesions under local anesthesia. Results: Recommended patients were 3 women and 2 men with age range of 20-35 years with extensive mandibular odontoma. All surgeries were performed under local anesthesia in oral & maxillofacial surgery department of Mashhad dental school. Conclusion: All the patients were satisfied with ambulatory treatment and the performance of surgery under local anesthesia. They passed postoperative latent period (almost 7 days), and revealed no surgery complications.
