Background: Aggressive periodontitis (AP) is a rapidly progressing periodontitis occurring in clinically healthy individuals, primarily characterized by rapid attachment loss, bone destruction that occurs early in life and familial aggregation.  Although it is a risk factor for peri-implantitis, the documented survival rate of implants in delayed placement protocol is 97.8%.

Case Presentation: This case report describes a multi-disciplinary approach in managing a case of AP with early implant placement and guided bone regeneration for an overall rehabilitation with one year follow up.

Conclusion: The outcomes of this case report indicate successful osseointegration of implants placed by early placement protocol with guided regeneration in aggressive periodontitis.

Ameloblastoma usually presents as a painless, slow growing, locally aggressive swelling with expansion of the cortical bone, perforation of the cortical plates and infiltration of the soft tissues. It is a classic case of a true neoplasm of enamel organ tissue that lacks the potential to undergo differentiation. Granular cell ameloblastoma is a rare type of ameloblastoma being aggressive in nature with a marked propensity for recurrence and which can progress to metastasis.

This report discusses a case report of a 46 years old female patient diagnosed with granular cell ameloblastoma on the right side of mandible.
