Hi.. Ameloblastomas are often silent with no complaints except for swelling of the jaw in few cases. Kindly send your x ray( OPG) to give correct diagnosis. If it's already diagnosed then surgical treatment is the best option followed by other necessary endodontic treatment.
Ameloblastoma is a benign tumor, locally aggressive and a high recurrence rate. There are two ways to treat radical surgery i.e segmental resection and conservative approach i.e enucleation with bone curettage. Most of the time with conservative approach there is a high recurrence rate. It would be good if you could mention the earlier treatment done. If you could post x-rays before your first surgery, after surgery and the one taken recently would give you a very valued second opinion.
To comment anything based on your information would be wrong. Ameloblastoma is a tumor occurring in the jaws. To give a diagnosis of Ameloblastoma a biopsy is necessary. Please consult an oral and maxillofacial surgeon personally before undergoing surgery. Proper clinical and radiographic examination is essential before undergoing any surgery.
You can upload your xray image if possible.
