SURGERY FOR CYSTS OF THE JAW

The surgical removal of the cyst is not different from procedures such as tooth extraction and implantation. It can be removed without paint under an effective and adequate local anesthesia. However, a cyst of the jaw that is identified to be very large may need to be removed under general anesthesia.

Then antibiotics, analgesics and antiseptic mouthwash prescribed by the dentist are used as with the other surgical procedures. You should be careful not to have trauma on the removal site of the cyst. Care for and cleaning of the wound site is critical. Avoid stitches opening during the healing process. You must visit your dentist for routine controls scheduled by your dentist in order to assess your osseous (bone) healing and to check whether the cyst has recurred.
