the cavity. The sponge absorbs the blood and helps to retain the clot formed. This helps in bone healing and regeneration of bone.
In the third Group C of 7 patients autogenous tooth bone graft (AutoBT) was used to fill the cavity. Patient’s third molar tooth is extracted and sent to tooth bank to get it grinded in granule form of 400- 800µm. Sterilization of the material is done. After enucleation and curettage this granular form AutoBT is filled in the cavity and then gingival flap is sutured back tightly.
Post operative care is taken by giving analgesic , NSAIDs and antibiotics is given for next 7 days for pain, swelling and to prohibit any infection.
Inclusion criteria- this study include patients with jaw cyst size 5 cm, odontogenic

In this study male are more common involved than female and most common age group involved was 20- 30 years of age. Radicular cyst was found more common followed by dentigerous cyst. Location wise cyst in mandible is more common than maxilla. Most of the odontogenic cysts are benign but some may show aggressive nature. Most of the time, these cysts are asymptomatic especially in the early stages. Many a time it is discovered incidentally during a dental radiographic examination. Most common symptom is pain which may or may not come along with swelling. Sign and symptoms cannot always differentiate between benign and malignant …show more content…
Partsch described that this procedure can be done with cyst size of about 3 cm and if it is done in larger cyst it might show infection and complications later. Removal of cyst obviously results in a bone defect forming a cavity. An ideal bone cavity can be seen in most of the cases of cyst occurred in mandible which shows the cavity is completely surrounded by solid bone walls except the site of approach. This promotes a stable blood clot formation which helps in regular and safe healing of the bone[7]. In this study 37 patients underwent enucleation followed by primary closure without any graft material. The cavity sizes of these patients were less than 3 cm. After cystectomy , bone reconstruction in the cavity is important for functional rehabilitation of the jaw. Spontaneous bone regeneration can occur in cystic cavity without the help of any graft material. After primary closure of the wound the bone healing takes place in three phases. After enucleation inflammatory phase starts where the blood clot acts as medium for movement and generating inflammatory cells initially and later into bone through various growth factor such as TGFβ(transforming growth factorβ), TNFβ(tumor necrosis factorβ) platelet derived growth factor, interleukin I. In proliferative phase formation of new blood vessels
