Odontogenic keratocysts are not uncommon in dental practice. Besides the removal of the cyst, regular follow-up checks are also important, as they facilitate early diagnosis and treatment of recurrent cysts. The successful removal of the cyst is followed by prosthetic rehabilitation. The focus should be on the objectives of restoring the patient's ability to chew and on resolving any issues affecting speech. Using templates for the implantation procedure ensures the correct positioning of the implants. If a template is used, any additional augmentation that may be required can be performed precisely at the site of the planned implantation, thus preventing over-augmentation.
