Handling Of Dental Cysts (periapical Cysts)?
Tonight I want to ask, I just put the stirrup, but for better treatment, I recommended pulling my upper teeth, but after being X-rayed, it turned out that my upper front teeth had periapical cysts, even though I didn’t feel any pain or anything on my teeth. It feels like other normal teeth. Then I was recommended to do surgery at a dental conservation specialist. After searching, if the cyst is checked badly enough, maybe the teeth are raised. I don’t want my teeth to be toothless. I was a little hesitant but if it was not followed up, my dentist would not dare to pull my teeth. The question is whether there is another possible safer treatment than pulling my teeth later? Is it dangerous if I do not do the surgery?
Hello Nunana, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Responding to the problem you are telling, you have a dental cyst. A cyst is a sac that forms in a part of the body that contains fluid. Most cysts are harmless in the body, but must be monitored because they can cause serious disorders.
Tooth cysts are generally asymptomatic and are found out after a rongen, usually the patient wants to pull a tooth or something. The cause of a dental cyst is not known with certainty but the previous infection factor that triggered the formation of it.
Cysts that first appear on teeth are usually located at the tip of the tooth root and are commonly referred to as peripaikal cysts. However, over time, periapical cysts will continue to enlarge until they become radicular cysts. Because the size is getting bigger will cause complaints such as pain or discomfort in the teeth due to pressure by the cyst to the nerves of the teeth.
Complications that are often experienced by patients with periapical cysts if not handled properly will form redicular cysts, in addition to tooth pain more serious complications can occur such as large cysts pushing teeth around the cyst so that they will shake, the pain caused by these cysts will not lost with pain medication, destruction of the jaw or root of the tooth, tooth tissue death can occur.
For that reason, because you have been advised to take action by a dental conservation specialist, immediately do that. The smaller the size of the cyst, the maximum handling result will be.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
