    Post Orthodontic Idiopathic Bone Cavity - Case Report

    The Idiopathic bone cavity (IBC) is a nonepithelial lined cavity of the jaws. The lesion is mainly diagnosed in young patients most frequently during the second and third decade of life. It is seldom detected on buccal examination due to their lower inability to cause clinical symptoms. The majority of the traumatic cyst is located between the mandibular canine and the third molar but other locations are not totally excluded. The diagnosis is generally done on routine radiological examination as a unilocular radiolucent area with a “scalloping effect”.

    A persisting problem you have in your practice is that you train your staff and after a while, you find that they forget what they were taught. You wish you would glue the information in their minds.

    How do we get training to stick? It’s the million dollar question. Experts have long ago agreed that the interminable hours long dissertations and lectures are as ineffective as they are tedious.
