Objective: To analyze the clinical efficacy and application characteristics of the sequence method in the treatment of young patients with large cystic classic ameloblastoma (AM). Methods: 16 young patients with large cystic classic AM treated in the Department of Stomatology of the First Affiliated Hospital of Bengbu Medical College from February 2012 to August 2019 were selected. According to the patient's age, imaging examination, and pathological diagnosis, the sequence method was used for treatment. The patients were followed up regularly after the operation. Results: The patients were followed up for more than 2 years. Of the 16 patients, 13 had no recurrence after fenestration + first curettage, 3 had recurrence after fenestration + first curettage, and 2 had no recurrence after secondary curettage. One patient recurred after repeated curettage and followed up for 10 years and underwent osteotomy. Conclusion: Sequence method can play a good therapeutic effect on young large cystic classic AM.
