How might florid cemento-osseous dysplasia be treated?

In most people, florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) does not require treatment. People with this condition should be followed with dental x-rays every 2-3 years. In addition, because infections are difficult to treat in people with FCOD, sometimes people with FCOD take antibiotics to help prevent infections. If someone with FCOD does get an infection of the jaw, treatment may include surgery to clean out the infection.
