Wisdom teeth are the ones retained most often. Sometimes they do not cause problems throughout the life of the patient and their removal is not necessary. However, often their difficult eruption leads to complications and they need to be surgically removed.
Dental cysts can be of different types, origins and locations. The ones most commonly found are those at the apex of the root of dead teeth. These are the periapical cysts. Usually the reason for their formation is untreated caries that reaches the pulp, which causes chronic pulp inflammation, and over time this process encompasses the entire pulp. In many cases, when this inflammation is left untreated, it penetrates through the opening of the root apex, where a connective tissue structure is located. This connective tissue is made up of fibres, blood and lymph vessels, nerves and a tissue fluid called periodontium. This fluid has protective properties which activate in the event of inflammation. This is how the cyst is formed.
Granuloma is also a cause of cyst formation. When a granuloma is left untreated, it becomes a cyst. Cysts can form on all teeth, as well as at any age. The presence of a cyst can be diagnosed using a panoramic dental X-ray. Very often the cause of the cyst is poorly performed endodontic treatment. Poor sealing when the root canal is filled causes inflammation, which again causes a dental cyst.
At EO Dent Dental Clinics we have the most modern equipment with which we can diagnose and perform cyst treatment.
In many cases, the amount of bone in the area of the upper molar teeth is not enough to place implants. Not even the shortest implant can be placed when there is bone loss. In these circumstances, the sinuses on both sides of the nose are too close to the jaw. In order for implant placement to be possible, it is necessary to perform the so-called sinus lifting.
This procedure, simply put, means lifting the sinuses with appropriate bone material. It can be applied in two ways – lateral sinus lifting and crestal sinus lifting.
Lateral – laterally to the jaw
Crestal – underneath, from the direction of the teeth
