The calcifying cystic odontogenic tumor is a rare benign odontogenic lesion. We describe an easy technique to enucleate it realizing a trap door osteotomy with a piezoelectric device. After enucleation the trap door was repositioned by two 3-hole miniplates. The surgical procedure was realized under local anesthesia and conscious sedation, with a specific protocol, in an out-patient clinical setting. The diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination.
