A 36-year-old female patient was referred to a private clinic presenting an asymptomatic, intraosseous lesion in the posterior right mandible. The lesion was found incidentally during a routine radiographic examination (Figure 1). The patient's past medical and dental histories were unremarkable, and she denied any use of medications or harmful habits. The intraoral examination did not reveal any significant alteration in the oral mucosa; no swelling relative to the intraosseous lesion (i.e., in the mandibular molar area) could be noted during local palpation. There was no tooth mobility, and teeth were vital upon pulp sensibility and vitality tests.
