Often unnecessary.: most maxillary sinus cysts are benign and are only found on routine xray examination. They are usually mucous in origin and rarely is the removal recommended. If recommended the procedure involves an incision in the muccobuccal fold area and an entry into the sinus is made with a drill. The cyst is curetted-incision is closed. Minor if any discomfort. An office procedure.

Possible infection: Sounds like infection-your oral surgeon should be able to handle this easily. Call their office and relate what is happening-they might want to start you on an antibiotic. Nothing really to worry about-just need to be seen.

A-Z: Should not be traumatic-can be done awake or with an IV anesthetic. Should be done by a board certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. Also some patients will complain no matter what transpires.
