    Planning and surgical treatment of central giant cells granuloma using 3D printed resin prototypes
    Author(s): Lucas Viana Angelim*

    The Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) is an intraosseous lesion that has an unknown etiology. It can be considered as a benign neoplasm and as a reactive lesion because it has a local and aggressive behavior which can also be a body reaction induced, for example, by a hemorrhage. That injury occurs more often in the mandible and particularly involves the anterior region, frequently crossing the midline. Its radiographic appearance isn’t pathognomonic, showing as lesions well-defined lesions with unilocular or multilocular radiolucency. CGCGs are classified as non-aggressive or aggressive type and, this distinction is so important because it defines the treatment protocol and helps to predict how the post-operatory will be. Nowadays, technology can assist and facilitate health specialists minimizing the costs and reducing the time that is expended. The purpose of this research .. View More»
