Ameloblastoma is a benign epithelial neoplasm and ranges from 10% of the entire odontogenic tumor. Ameloblastoma is characterized by a slow growth pattern and can grow to a very large size and cause severe facial deformities. These tumors are most common at the age of the third and fourth decades, and most often occur in the posterior mandibular, especially in the third molar tooth, as well as associated with the impacted follicular or dental cyst. Classification of Ameloblastoma According to WHO distinguishable into benign ameloblastoma which include: (1) solid/multicystic ameloblastoma, (2) unicystic Ameloblastoma, (3) the peripheral (or extraosseous) ameloblastoma, (4) the desmoplastic ameloblastoma and malignant ameloblastoma based on the frequency sequence which includes: (a) metastasizing ameloblastoma, (b) Primary ameloblastic carcinoma, (c) Secondary intraosseous ameloblastic carcinoma, (d) secondary peripheral ameloblastic carcinoma. A radiological examination that can be conducted to diagnose ameloblastoma is plain photo, CT Scan and MRI. The image of Meloblastoma radiography may vary. Some of the depictions of lusent lesions are firmly, unilocular, well-orticated, which often relate to Corona tooth impacted or no eruption, so that it cannot be distinguished by odontogenic keratosis and dentigerous cysts on radiography. Some of the other, multilocular, internal septa and honey comb or soap appearance bubbles are often similar to the large odontogenic keratosis. However, only histopatological findings can help to determine the malignant tumors and the alteration of carcinomatose.
