Paget's disease is an idiopathic, non-neoplastic affliction characterized by disordered bone formation and resorption. It affects about 3% of the population. Paget's disease affects mainly the skull, femur, tibia and pelvic bones. Facial skeleton is involved in about 17% of the cases. We present a case of Paget's disease involving maxillary and mandibular skeleton which developed osteomyelitis following extraction of maxillary right posterior teeth.
