There can be a wide variety and prevalence of oral pathological conditions in children that can differ from adults in terms of symptoms and clinical course. This case presentation aims to raise awareness about the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of oral pathological lesions in pediatric patients. In three patients, two boys and one girl aged between 10 and 14, diagnosed with the radicular cyst, odontogenic keratocyst, and odontogenic myxoma, treatments such as marsupialization, enucleation, and enucleation with the associated impacted tooth were performed based on the size and type of the lesions. Postoperative follow-up of the patients is ongoing. Knowing pediatric oral lesions is crucial for accurate and differential diagnosis. When determining the treatment approach for these lesions in children, factors such as ongoing maxillofacial development, high osteogenic activity, and potential cooperation issues should be taken into consideration.
