Step 1 : Part 2 ( Position in the jaw ) :
Identifying the exact location of the lesion in the maxillofacial complex aids the diagnostic process in two ways :
- It determines the epicenter ; and
- Some lesions tend to be found in specific locations
For example : here we have A Radicular cyst which is in peri-radicular of the first molar of right quadrant of mandible , superior of mandibular canal .
For example : this lesion , Cherubism , is bilateral , manifesting in both the left and the right mandibular rami . because the origin of the lesion is in the midramus region , the mandibular molars have been displaced anteriorly on both sided . (more example)
