Various pathologies affect the tooth and tooth-forming apparatus such as developmental anomalies, bacterial and nonbacterial tooth injuries, inflammation, cysts, and neoplasms. In this chapter, we describe representative odontogenic disorders, with a particular focus on odontogenic cysts and tumors. To understand the pathogenesis of these conditions, clinicians must have a basic understanding of odontogenesis and the morphological and functional characteristics of teeth and related structures.
