The purpose of this study was to report two cases of Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumour (AOT) with a classical histological picture, one of which was located in the maxilla and the other in the mandible. Two female patients aged 17 and 22 years old presented with a painless swelling in the anterior maxilla and in the anterior mandible. The panoramic view showed circumscribed radiolucent areas with fine calcifications in both the cases. The lesions were totally enucleated and the teeth 21 and 22 in the 1st case and 31 and 32 in the 2nd case were removed. The AOT frequently resembles other odontogenic lesions such as dentigerous cysts or ameloblastomas. Therefore, it should be distinguished from the more common lesions of odontogenic origin in routine dental examinations.

Osteoporosis is a disease of bone which is common in middle aged post-menopausal women. The osteoporotic bones will become weak and are prone to fractures. Osteoporosis means “porous bone” is a “silent disease”. Healthy bone microscopically appears like a honeycomb but, in osteoporotic patients the spaces are much bigger. The osteoporotic bone will have less density or mass and the structure of bone tissue is abnormal. As the bone becomes less dense, they become weaker and more likely to fracture. Women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis than men. Oral health maintenance for adults with osteoporosis is important. Bone weakness and loss may also affect the ridges that hold dentures resulting in poor fitting dentures. The patients require new dentures more often than those who have strong, healthy bones. Best way to handle problems is avoid delaying or postponing the dental treatment. Regular dental visits and healthy lifestyle is necessary in strengthening and maintenance of good bone health. Well balanced diet with high amounts of vitamin-D & calcium with regular physical activity is recommended. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. All Rights Reserved.
