Condensing osteitis in oral region.

The associated tooth may be carious or contains a large restoration, and is usually associated with a non-vital tooth. May represent a physiologic bone reaction to a known stimulus; thus, in a classic case, the radiopaque bone lesion itself need not be removed The inflamed tooth that stimulated the focal sclerosing osteomyelitis should first be diagnosed and treated For a necrotic oateitis pulp or irreversible pulpitis, dental extraction or endodontic therapy is performed causing many cases to partially regress and not enlarge radiographically For nonclassic radiographic or clinical cases, bone lesion biopsy may be useful to rule out more significant lesions.
