Abstract

Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a rare benign fibro-osseous lesion which affects multiple quadrants and predominantly the mandible. This case report presents a successful implant placement with 8-year of follow-up in a 44-year-old woman asking for a fixed restoration in mandibular right posterior edentulous area. Radiographic images showed lobular, irregularly shaped radiopacities and radiolucencies almost symmetrically observed in the premolar-molar area of the right and left regions of the mandible. The findings of X-ray images were attributable to FCOD. Minimally invasive two-stage surgery with strict infection control was followed to place two implants in lower right posterior region. The implants demonstrated clinically rigid fixation and restored successfully after 6 months. A direct functional connection between dysplastic bone and the implant load bearing surface was evidenced by the lack of symptoms, and the lack of soft tissues inflammation or peri-implant bone loss up to 8 years follow-up.
