Kevin J. Connor, DDS, MS, shares the oral pathology case of a healthy, 66-year-old white male who presents to the clinic as a new patient who hasn’t seen a dentist in about six years. During a normal cleaning, exam, and routine radiography, a large radiolucency is found in the left mid-body of the mandible. The patient says there’s no pain, hasn’t noticed any new swelling, and denies paresthesia of his left inferior alveolar nerve (V3). His exam shows he is missing tooth No. 19. Read more details about this case so you can plan the next steps in treatment and submit your preliminary diagnosis.
