What is a root cyst?

What is a root cyst? Dental cysts are essentially epithelial cysts of the jaw that cover part or all of the tooth crown or root. Most cysts develop due to tooth decay or other causes of inflammation or infection of the tooth root or crown.

When part of a tooth decays or dies for some reason, it releases toxins that worsen the inflammation.

These inflammatory areas continue to stimulate the necrosis process, leading to the destruction of Malassezia epithelial cells surrounding the dental ligament, forming a dental cyst. The larger the cyst, the more it presses on the tooth bone, releasing more toxins and causing more tooth loss. This causes bones to become thinner and more susceptible to fracture.

Dental cysts often develop silently and without typical symptoms. Patients only have pain when the cyst is too large, the anterior chamber, teeth are painful and appear to be loose. Dental cysts are most commonly found in the upper front teeth.

Looseness of surrounding teeth.

Dental cysts destroy tissue cells around the top of the tooth. Gradually, when the tip is lost, inflammatory factors develop into an inflammation deep inside the tooth pulp, silently destroying the tooth root from the inside.

Root cysts can cause local bone loss and lead to bone loss in adjacent teeth. If left untreated, it can lead to mass tooth loss. Dental cysts can hinder the jawbone’s inherent function. When jaw bone is lost, chewing function is affected and the face is deformed.

Therefore, it is necessary to treat this disease as quickly as possible because currently the most effective treatment is surgery.

Before performing surgery, the doctor will perform an oral examination combined with dental X-rays to determine the severity of the dental cysts, the number of affected teeth and the degree of jaw bone defects. After surgery, the doctor will find the most appropriate treatment method for patients with root cysts.

Tooth cysts are mild and do not affect the tooth bone

If the dental cyst is diagnosed early and is small in size, it will not affect more than 1/3 of the tooth bone. In this case, surgical removal will be simpler because the tooth bone will be preserved.

At that time, doctors will perform surgery to remove the dental cyst combined with root canal treatment to eliminate inflammation around the cystic tooth area. After the inflamed areas around the tooth have been removed and the tooth canal is sealed, the tooth will recover slowly over time.

Tooth cysts develop, causing bone loss on 1/3 of the teeth

If the hole in the jawbone is small, the doctor will develop and fill it himself. In case of large holes, the doctor will have to fill them with specialized braces methods such as bone and tissue grafting with specialized dental braces materials.

After tooth removal, in order to limit jaw bone loss leading to facial deformities, the most effective way is to perform an implant. This will not affect the function of eating, chewing and beautifying the jaw and also avoiding future facial deformation.

Is dental cyst surgery painful?

Whether surgery is painful or not is very difficult to answer because it depends on the patient’s pain threshold and the extent of the dental cyst. However, during surgery, doctors use painkillers or anesthesia to make the surgery painless. Mild cases of cysts may only cause mild stinging after surgery.

In cases where tooth extraction is necessary, root canal treatment may be somewhat painful for a few days after the wound heals. To reduce pain after surgery, patients need to follow a strict care regimen, especially diet to avoid inflammation and recurrent infections, and recover quickly.
