Get rid of the cysts that destroy your teeth and bone. Don’t wait a minute!
Cysts are “silent killers” because often patients do not have any symptoms, and unless a dentist is visited after a certain period of time and does not have an X-ray to detect the inflammation in question, cysts can grow expansively and destroy anything that gets in their way : bone, tooth and / or adjacent teeth.
If you notice a change in tooth color, or have a large unsanitary caries for a long time, the appearance of a bulge (ball) in the area of the outside of the gingiva or on the palatal side, pain and sudden swelling that may recede but after a while it is time for HITAN a visit to the dentist. After clinical and X-ray diagnosis, the dentist decides whether a cyst is formed, which is a size, and refers the patient to an oral surgeon to have it removed surgically as soon as possible.
Cyst removal is a discipline of removing hollows encased in tissue that cause tooth and/or bone decay. Cysts are silent killers because patients often have no symptoms and if within a certain period of time the dentist isn’t visited and an X-ray image isn’t made and the problematic inflammation isn’t ascertained, cysts can extensively grow and destroy everything in their way: the bone, tooth and/or neighbouring teeth. They arise as a result of chronic inflammation around the root of the tooth that hasn’t been treated or the root canal treatment has not proved to be effective. Some patients also have a genetic predisposition and are prone to the appearance of cystic changes in the oral cavity. If the patient notices a change in the colour of the tooth, if he has a large untreated cavity for a longer period of time, an appearance of a bulge (ball) on the outer gum area or on the palatal side, pain and sudden swelling that can subside, but also return after some time, it’s time to visit the dentist. After clinical and X-ray diagnostics, the dentist determines whether a cyst has formed, what size is it and directs the patient to an oral surgeon that will surgically remove it. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia for smaller cysts, they are quickly removed and postoperatively the patient feels wonderful. If the cyst has affected the apexes of the roots of the teeth, they are removed and the surgeon closes the canals in retrograde, but if the cyst has affected the majority of the tooth, it is removed together with the cyst.
In case of large and complicated cysts, the patient can be directed to the maxillofacial surgery.
