Ameloblastic fibroma

Last revised by Andrea Molinari on 4 Jun 2022

Ameloblastic fibromas appear as unilocular lucent mandibular lesions, most frequently in the posterior mandible, and are usually associated with impacted teeth, centered on the unerupted crown. They, therefore, appear very similar to unilocular ameloblastomas. They are composed of enamel and embryonic connective tissue.


Ameloblastic fibromas are relatively rare, as they account for around 2% of all odontogenic tumors 3
