ABSTRACT
Introduction: Odontogenic keratocyst is a locally aggressive and highly recurrent lesion, which occurs mostly on the posterior mandible with a slightly higher rate in males. It is thought to originate from dental laminae residues. Radiographically, it may appear unilocular or multilocular, with or without defined borders.
Case Report: In this case report, surgical treatment of the odontogenic keratocyst in the right posterior mandible and reconstruction of the defected site is presented.
Conclusion: Due to highly recurrent nature of the odontogenic keratocysts, patient’s follow-up continues.

Keywords: Dental implants, Enucleation, Extraoral bone graft, Odontogenic keratocyst, Reconstruction
