Tooth: The area is numbed. An incision is made to expose the area with the impaction. Bone is removed if necessary to expose the tooth so that it may be easily removed. The eruption cyst/cyst is removed at the same time, sharp bony edges are smoothed and the area is rinsed with sterile water and closed with sutures. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a cyst in your wisdom tooth?

Is it possible to have a cyst in your wisdom tooth?

Dentigerous cyst: When a tooth has not erupted into your mouth it has a 'sac' around it. If it does not erupt, there is a chance that the sac will enlarge. If it is sufficiently large, it will be classified as a cyst. It is usually called a dentigerous cyst. The cyst may undergo transformation into a tumor or in extreme case cancerous lesion. It is advisable to have the cyst checked with your dentist. ...Read more

Thanks 4 answering my question, 4got to say, how long can an infection from a cyst or impacted wisdom tooth go on for, had my pain now on and of 3yrs?

A long time!: A cyst, unless removed, will usually continue to grow. Also, an infection that goes untreated may continue to persist. If you are having pain that persists, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a dentist or oral surgeon, who can take the proper type of x-ray to view the area of your wisdom tooth to locate any potential problems/cysts/ or infections. Get thee to a dentist! ...Read more

It's been 7days since impacted(upper) wisdom tooth@cyst removed genr anerthetic still having pain in side palate and throbbin in front gum help x ?

Not unusual: This is not that unusual but if the area is throbbing or you have fever or the chills a visit to the surgeon may be indicated to check for infection. Warm salt water rinses and more healing time might help as well. If there are stitches they can be an irritant until removed. Time heals all wounds, but not in the presence of infection! good luck! ...Read more

Had palate pain for 4yrs, had impacted wisdom tooth @cyst removed general anesthetic, now pain has gone? Y did it cause palate pain. Thanks x

Referred pain: Almost anything that hurts someplace can have some pain in other places show up. Why? We aren't always sure. In your hard palate case, some of the nerves going there may have been pressed on by the inflammation around the lesion that was removed. ...Read more

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
