Radicular cyst: A radicular cyst develops from leftover tissue from tooth development. Usually the remains of cells from tooth development remain in our jawbone. These tissues can, when stimulated by inflammation, for example due to a dead dental nerve and/or a badly done root treatment, be excited into growth – the result may be the development of a cyst.
Treatment is removal of the cyst.
