Introduction: Odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is a developmental odontogenic cyst of the jaws that causes extensive destruction even before the clinical manifestations are evident. It is a well-known entity among private practitioners as it has a high recurrence rate and requires meticulous treatment planning. Unfortunately, clinicians have less understood its basic histopathology. Objective: This article highlights the preliminary attempt of an author in designing third dimension of histopathological aspect of OKC so that it is easily understood by oral pathologists, general pathologists, nonpathologists, students, and even patients too. Methodology: Preliminary three-dimensional (3D) images and videos on histopathological aspect of OKC were designed by the author using 3DMax (Autodesk Media and Entertainment) and Adobe Premiere Pro 5.5 software which is a video editing software (Adobe Systems) based on two-dimensional descriptions mentioned in the literature. Results: Internal cellular architecture of OKC was created in a lifelike manner through 3D animation video and images. Conclusion: Histopathological aspect of all oral lesions should be explained in third dimension too.
