Introduction: Aim of the retrospective study is to determine the type and frequency of the cysts and tumors in the oral cavity and to assess their sex, age and site distribution.
Materials and Methods: Study was conducted based on clinical data collected year wise during 2015 to 2018 of all the patients with cysts and tumors under the categories of age, sex and site distribution.
Results: study group consists of total 225 patients, out of which 76(33.77%) were females and rest 149(66.22%) were males. The most common cyst is the radicular cyst which shows high frequency among the male patients, most common site of distribution is maxilla and commonly seen during second decade of life. Among the tumors ameloblastoma shows female predilection and occurs most commonly during fourth decade of life.
Conclusion: We observed marked geographical variation in the incidences of various cysts and tumors. According to this study, cyst occurs more frequently than tumors in the oral cavity and the most common cyst is radicular cyst whereas among the tumor, ameloblastoma occupies the first position in frequency.
