Blood Diseases.

Blood diseases are some of the most common questions throughout dental career. Especially in the first three years. I have complied the classification and Oral Manifestations of certain common symptoms.

Odontogenic cysts and tumors are the most important topics in Oral Pathology. Ameloblastoma itself is quite a large topic to talk about.

So on a rough basis, Ameloblastomas are basically tumors. They are tumors of Odontogenic (tooth forming tissue) in origin. They are benign in nature.

I have included detailed notes for types, clinical features and histology. Treatment I shall share on a more detailed version in coming blogs.
