Radicular cysts are the most common cystic lesions affecting the jaws which are arise from the epithelial residues in the periodontal ligament as a result of inflammation. They generally result due to pulpal infection following dental caries. Due to destructive growth characteristics of radicular cyst during the intraosseous stage, they appear to reach considerable size, then the treatment often requires complete enucleation and skeletal reconstruction. Here we present the case of a 19-year-old male patient who was come to our department, because of a huge, bulging mass in his right cheek region. Surgery consisted of complete removal of the cyst and immediate reconstruction of the midfacial buttress using an autologous rib graft. This case underscores the nature of the frequently asymptomatic and long-term evolution of maxillary radicular cysts, with their growth causing massive bone destruction for which skeletal reconstruction is required.
