Not removing my wisdom teeth now I have a cyst and now going through my 3rd surgery? Should i remove that wisdom tooth?

Not removing my wisdom teeth now I have a cyst and now going through my 3rd surgery? Should i remove that wisdom tooth?

I would: If i understand your question correctly you are asking whether or not to remove a wisdom tooth that is associated with a cyst. If that is the case then i would definitely remove the tooth and the cyst around it. These cysts can grow and destroy the jaw bone around them over time. I don't know exactly why you had to have two other surgeries to remove your wisdom teeth. It is easier in one. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired.

See a surgeon: Cysts need to be treated so that they will not further damage your bone. As they slowly expand, they can cause damage to nerves and teeth. Get this taken care of by an oral surgeon asap. ...Read more

I had an impacted wisdom tooth and cyst (associated with that tooth) removed. Will it affect my teeth aligning with Damon Braces on?

I had an impacted wisdom tooth and cyst (associated with that tooth) removed. Will it affect my teeth aligning with Damon Braces on?

Not a problem: Removing wisdom tooth/cyst should not affect Orthodontic care. Ask both the Oral Surgeon AND a qualified Orthodontic Specialist to advise depending on your anatomic malrelationships. By the way, nothing Magic about Damon braces. Treatment dependent on skill and experience of the operator (that's why you should see a specialist), not the hardware. ...Read more

I'm sorry i meant atypical facial pain, was told 3 yrs ago it had nothing to do with my impacted wisdom tooth @cyst my palate painful swollen cheek ?

Check it out: If you've had any type of facial pain on one side with swelling you should consult your dds for problems involving your wisdom tooth if one is present in the area or under the skin in the area. They can definitely cause facial pain and swelling especially if partially erupted or trying to cut through the skin. Check with your dds again, if they ignore it find one that will listen to you. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi, is it normal to be spitting blood after extraction of impacted wisdom tooth@cyst under general anesthetic 4days later, thanks x?

Depends... : It really depends how much blood. If it's just a small amount, it can appear to be a lot when it mixes with the saliva. It will generally be pinkish to red, but should not be a great amount. If your mouth is filling up with dark or bright red old and you cannot stop this with pressure you should be seen by your surgeon right away. ...Read more

I'm a little freightend I have a t facial pain in the palate, but been told I have impacted wisdom tooth with cyst@cheek is swollen, could you reassure?

I'm a little freightend I have a t facial pain in the palate, but been told I have impacted wisdom tooth with cyst@cheek is swollen, could you reassure?

Follow up cyst: I am not sure what you mean by "a t" facial pain, nor how long ago your cyst was first seen, but swelling of the same cheek (as the cyst) with pain suggests that your cyst may have grown and could now be infected. Follow up with your oral surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Even if symptoms were to temporarily ease up, do not ignore. ...Read more
