  88. 88. ADENOMATOID ODONTOGENIC TUMOR (AOT),ADENOAMELOBLASTOMA• This is a tumor mostly of teenagers. • It occurs in the middle and anterior portions of the jaws in contrast to ameloblastoma which is found mostly in the posterior segment • Two-thirds occur in the maxilla. Anterior • more common in females. • This tumor is encapsulated. • It is treated by curettage with a recurrence rate approaching zero • The radiographic appearance is a unilocular radiolucency, • often around the crown of an unerupted tooth in which case they resemble a dentigeous
  89. 89. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) associated with an unerupted tooth #13. It resembles a dentigerous cyst. Some AOTs produce calcifications that may appear as “snowflake” densities.
  90. 90. Histologic examination reveals a thick capsule of fibrous connective tissue. The tumor fills the central cavity, there is little stroma. Tumor cells frequently form ball-like structures referred to as “rosettes” Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor
  91. 91. Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor Note how the tumor cells form balls of cells that are called rosettes. Another identifying feature is the presence of ductlike structures
  92. 92. Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT,Pindborg tumor) Rare. First desribed by JJ Pindborg in 1958. This is the most “unodontogenic” tumor of the group, the tumor cells do not resemble odontogenic tissue. Pathogenesis: 1.From reduced enamel epithelium - Pindborg 1958 2. From the stratum intermedium of the enamel organ- Gon 1965
  93. 93. • Clinical features: • 1. Associated with unerupted or impacted or embedded tooth. • 2. Painless mass and slow growth. • 3. Mandible > maxilla, Men > women, Seen in range of 8-82 years • 4. More often in molar region.
  94. 94. Pathological features: - Polyhedral epithelial cells seen -Amyloid, basal lamina, dentin and keratin appear as a homogenous substance (Characteristic feature of CEOT) -Calcification are seen. It calcifies in a concentrically lamellated“tree-ring” pattern known as Liesegang calcifications.This explains the name of calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor.
  95. 95. CEOT, high power view. The tumor cells resemble squamous epithelium more than odontogenic epithelium. There is some variation in nuclear size and shape, but this is not a malignant tumor. Calcifications (extreme left) in a CEOT account for the density noted on radiographs. These are thought to be calcified amyloid or amyloid-like material, some of which can be seen right of center as a pale eosinophilic globule (arrow).
  96. 96. Radiological features: • Chaudary (1972) -three stages of development of CEOT • I stage: Radiolucent appearance same like dentigerous cyst • II stage: Minute calcifications appear. • III stage: Honey combed appearance Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor in the body of the mandible. It appears as a radiolucent lesion with smokey dense
  97. 97. Treatment Intraosseous lesions: Marginal or segmental resection Extraosseous lesion : Simple local excision CEOT lacks a capsule but apparently does not infiltrate as deeply into surrounding tissues as does ameloblastoma. Excision with a small margin of surrounding bone is usually curative.
  98. 98. AMELOBLASTIC FIBROMA • This is a tumor of childhood, the typical patient is about 12 –14 years old, seldom is it seen beyond age 20. • The posterior segment of the mandible is the most common location. • Local swelling or failure of teeth to erupt on time or improper alignment may call attention to the tumor. • Ameloblastic fibromas are purely radiolucent.
  99. 99. Ameloblastic fibroma in and around the crowns of lower molar teeth. It is subtle, the second deciduous molar tooth has been tilted downward by the tumor. Patient was a 5 year old boy. Small lesions may be unilocular but larger lesions are ordinarily
  100. 100. • Both odontogenic epithelium and odontogenic ectomesenchyme contribute to this tumor • (an odontogenic mixed tumor not to be confused with the mixed tumor of salivary gland). • The epithelium grows in small islands and cords Ameloblastic fibroma, medium power. Islands of odontogenic epithelium exhibit peripheral columnar cells. The stroma is cellular ectomesenchyme that resembles the dental papilla, the forerunner of the dental pulp.
  101. 101. Ameloblastic fibroma, high power. Cords of epithelium lie in an ectomesenchyme stroma.
  102. 102. ODONTOMA: COMPOUND AND COMPLEX TYPES • Defined as benign tumors of the dental hard tissues with the word composite used to designate the presence of the four dental tissues – enamel,dentin,cementum,pulp. • The tumors in which odontogenic differentiation is fully expressed are the odontomas • In these tumors, the epithelium and ectomesenchyme realize their potential and make enamel and dentin respectively. • As a result,these tumors are mostly radiodense.
  103. 103. Compound composite odontoma • Odontomas with calcified structures bearing some degree of resemblance anatomically to normal teeth. • Occurs in second or third decade of life. • Slow growing, non infiltrating malformation • Occurs primarily in incisor and canine region of maxilla • Non aggressive, self limiting growth.
  104. 104. RADIOGRAPHIC FEATURES In the compound odontoma, multiple small and malformed tooth-like structures are formed creating a “bag of marbles” radiographic appearance .
  105. 105. Compound odontoma in the body of the mandible of a 17 year old boy These lesions are generally sit. between the roots of the erupted teeth. The lesion is well demarcated from surrounding bone by a thin radiolucent line representing the follicular capsule
  106. 106. PATHOLOGIC FEATURES • It consist of mostly dwarfed teeth with malformed crown and roots. The No. vary from 2 to 2000. • Different components such as enamel, dentin, cementum, pulpal tissue is present in disoriented fashion. • There is generally a surrounding capsule representing the dental follicle. • There may be inductive hyalinization of the surrounding connective tissue.
  107. 107. Compound odontoma of tumor . the small,closely spaced white bodies are individual malformed tooth-like structures. Compound odontoma, photomicrograph of decalcifed specimen. Note the structure that resembles a tooth with a pulp (P), a surrounding mantle of dentin (D) capped by enamel (E), center and left of center. P D E
  108. 108. SURGICAL CONSIDERATIONS • They are removed surgically to prevent cystic change, bone destruction and to their interference with normal eruption of the permanent teeth. • Recurrences are rare and can be prevented by removing the entire soft tissue portion.
  109. 109. COMPLEX COMPOSITE ODONTOMAS • It represents an abortive attempt at tooth formation. • Structural differentiation is poor. • The end result being a calcified mass displaying a disorderly pattern of hard tissues. • There is little resemblance to tooth form. The dentin and enamel are entwined in a mass that bears no resemblance to teeth. The result is a solid, dense mass of hard tissue.
  110. 110. Radiological Features Complex odontoma, posterior maxilla of a child. Nodular radiopacity with a density approximating that of tooth structure Surrounding opacity is radioluscent area representig the
  111. 111. Complex odontoma in anterior maxilla. Deciduous tooth is retained.
  112. 112. • Site – posterior part of mand. • Age -2 ,3 decade of life • Potency to grow to a large size. Treatment • Enucleation & curettage
  113. 113. Periapical lesions • Periapical cemental dysplasia ( Cementoma, periapical osteofibrosis, periapical dysplasia) • Common cementum producing lesion. • Incidence  2-3 per thousand pts. Gorlin (1958) 83% in black people • Primarily affects women  91% (Zegarelli 1964) • Average age  39 yrs. Rarely before 20 yrs. • Lesions are multiple & 77% occur in ant. Mand. Regn.
  114. 114. Periapical cemental dysplasia • Radiographically  3 distinct stages / considered progressive. • First osteolytic stage ( radiolucent like lesion surrounding apex ) • Second stage – intermediate referred to as cementoblastic ( partially calcified & show central area of opacity ) • Third or mature stage ( completely radio opaque surrounded by a thin radiolucent line ) • Limited growth potential / rarely grows larger than 5 mm.
  115. 115. Periapical cemental dysplasia • Microscopically  Variation in presention depending on stage of development. • Early lesion  composed of collagen producing fibroblasts & nutrient vessels. As it matures fibroblasts differentiate into cementoblasts or osteoblasts. Followed by formation of cementicles which coalesce to form solid masses of cementum. Occasionally incremental lines may give pagotoid appearance. • Diagnosis  By Radiographic & Clinical evalun.
  116. 116. Periapical cemental dysplasia • Differential diagnosis  Periapical cyst or Granuloma • Treatment : Observation ( Limited growth potential ) • Surgical removal  Often renders adjacent teeth Non- vital.
  117. 117. CEMENTOBLASTOMA (TRUE CEMENTOMA ) As a group, odontogenic tumors are not common. Cementoblastoma is among the rarest of the rare. This tumor typically occurs around the roots of the lower posterior teeth. Like virtually all odontogenic tumors,it is benign but expands the jaw, causes pain and requires surgical removal.
  118. 118. Radiographically it appears as a ball of dense material attached to the end of the root Cementoblastoma, typical radiographic appearance of a ball of cementum clinging to the root.
  119. 119. Cementoblastoma, gross specimen. This dense material is presumed to be cementum and the tumor cell line that secretes it is cementoblasts, hence the
  120. 120. So why the other name “true cementoma”? Recall that the lesion we know as cementoma is a self- limiting lesion ordinarily found in and around the apices of the lower incisor teeth. But the cementoblastoma is not self-limiting, it continues to grow until it is removed, hence it is a “true” tumor, a true cementoma. Maybe we should call the self-limiting cementoma by its other name, periapical cemental dysplasia.
  121. 121. Histologically • the mass of cementum is attached to the tooth root. • As it expands, the cementoblasts at the periphery add new cementum. C Cementoblastoma, medium power histopathology of the decalcified specimen. The field is dominated by sheets of cementum with a rim of cementoblasts (C) with an outer rim of normal
