Odontogenic lesions are cysts or tumors that develop in your jawbone or the soft tissues in your mouth. Odontogenic lesions can vary greatly in size and severity. These lesions are usually noncancerous (benign), but they may behave aggressively at times. Treatment generally involves surgical care but may include medical therapy for certain types of lesions.
