Opening to sinus: If the cyst was in the vicinity of the sinus the removal may have created an opening from the mouth to the sinus. These often heal and close on their own. Antibiotics would be prescribed along with precautions regarding creating pressure between the mouth and sinus such as drinking through a straw. If it doesn't close on its own surgery would be required. Follow-up with your dentist. ...Read more

I have a great dental cysts, matured in many years. Is it dangeroys? How must it be treated?

Surgically removed?: I can only give you some general guidelines since I cannot clinically see you nor the x-rays of your teeth and jaws & specifically the "dental cysts" in question. Cysts generally enlarge over time and need to be surgically removed. As they get larger over time, may become infected, effect other teeth, & destroy bone & other tissues, should not generally be left untreated. Consult with a local os. ...Read more

Having recurrent dental infection even after rct, apicoectomy and cyst removal. Can this be making me sick - swollen glands, aches, fatigue.

Poor prognosis: The damaging microbes from the dental infection grow in the mouth and then find their way by spreading to other organs of the body making you sick.

Oily/metallic taste in mouth for 7 weeks now, also dry. No dental probs. Have yellow cyst on tonsil, no pain. Firm module under ear behind jaw. Help!

See a dentist or ENT: The firm nodule under your ear is the big concern. It could be an affected lymph node or parotid gland. The bad taste and lack of saliva would suggest the latter. The question is why is it firm? Infection, cancer, blockage? Go see a dentist or ENT physician asap and get it checked out. The longer you wait, the worse it will get. And have your throat checked at the same time. ...Read more
