Not tooth related: A cyst is a pathogenic space in bone or soft tissue containing fluid or semi fluid material, and in the oral regions, almost always lined by epithelium. Non dentigerous implies that it is not related to a tooth directly or for its origin. They are nearly always treatable. You should consult with an oral surgeon.
