Dental Cysts

How it work's

Cysts are fluid filled cavities that can sometimes develop in the jaws. They can be present for many years in some cases before ever being noticed or found. They tend to stay dormant in the jaws for many years and very often are noticed coincidentally on an x-ray, when a dentist may be looking at other teeth in that area. Sometimes they become noticeable if they begin to increase or get infected.

Not all cysts need to be removed. Some can be monitored by taking a series of x-rays over a number of years to ensure they are not getting bigger, whereas others need to be removed with a short procedure. These cysts that are removed, are taken away to prevent them from growing excessively, as some types of cysts can dissolve the bone in the jaw if they are left in place. Depending on the size and location of the cyst, this procedure can be done under local anesthetic (with injection), sedation (see below) or general anesthetic.
