Recurrence is due to infiltrative growth of ameloblast cells through adjacent bone, responsible for local bone cancellous invasion. Currently medical research has not established way of preventing recurrence, many cases has been reported to have recurrence after 15-16 years of surgical removal of tumour.We can suggest patient to have regular medical screening at internal & physical examination.
