Abstract

Objective: Traumatic bone cysts (TBC) are rare in the jaws, and may be characterized by the presence of a cavity in bone with no epithelial lining. Clinically, TBC is asymptomatic and often discovered incidentally on routine radiographic examination. The purpose of this study was to describe the clinical, surgical, and radiographic features of TBCs.
