Abstract: Ameloblastoma is a benign and locally aggressive neoplasm. The treatment of choice is surgical resection, which, although removing tumour, will often result in aesthetic and functional problems for the patient.

Clinical relevance: For patients with ameloblastoma in the maxilla, careful planning with the involvement of a multidisciplinary team is essential for improving post-surgical quality of life.
