Today, in the treatment of a tooth cyst, various therapeutic techniques are available that do not affect soft tissues and are carried through the root canal. Such a treatment is considered the safest, but in terms of its effectiveness and ease of execution, it costs much less than resection of a tooth cyst. The price of this treatment, despite not very high efficiency, is quite high. That is why the operation with the use of resection is still one of the most well-known and effective methods of removing such a disease as a tooth cyst.
What is a tooth cyst?
Cyst in Greek means bubble. This disease is a formation in the soft tissues, most often in the immediate vicinity of the root. The cyst has solid walls and it is filled with pus. In the initial stages, the disease has no symptoms, and it is rather difficult to determine it, but with greater growth, it begins to cause pain when pressing on the tooth and swelling of the gums. There is a cyst due to infection in the affected soft tissues, most often this is due to injuries or errors in intracanal or surgical dentistry. It is an infection, due to which a cystic cavity appears, entails the greatest danger. With a strong development of education, it can even penetrate into the blood and lead to a deterioration in overall health.
Cyst itself is quite dangerous for the teeth. It destroys the connective tissue between the tooth and the alveolar process. Because of this, even a healthy tooth can simply fall out. The most common consequence of a cyst is a fistula tract on the gums, neck or cheeks. Due to the relatively high risk of disease, it should be disposed of immediately. There are several techniques to choose from the patient, but resection of the tooth cyst is most common. The price of such treatment, moreover, is quite affordable, so that it does not hit hard on the pocket.
What is resection of a tooth cyst?
Resection is the removal of a part of an organ, tissue, or neoplasm. This term is very actively used in surgery, including dental. The removal operation can be extensive and economical. In the first case, more of the affected tissues are removed, in the second, the specialist tries to affect only a small part of the organ or formation. In dental practice, both types of resection are used. An operation involving an economical resection of a tooth cyst is called cystotomy. It is referred to as therapeutic treatment due to minimal trauma and ease of execution. Most often, such an operation is performed on incisors and canines, and if the size of the formation is still quite small. After the preparatory work for the anesthesia and decontamination of the surface, the dentist removes the front part of the gums along with the wall of the cyst. All pus is pumped out of the cavity and treated with an antiseptic.
If the formation is very small after surgery, the affected tissues are simply sutured, but in more advanced situations there may be problems with healing. Usually, the front part of the gum is dragged out much faster, and inside remains emptiness. To prevent such an effect, with a strong education in the gum, a regulator is sutured, which prevents premature healing of the anterior wall. With such a regulator, the patient walks for about a week, after which they take it off and allow the gum to heal on its own. Surgery for complete resection of a tooth cyst is called cystectomy. It is in many ways similar to the first method, but it is already referred to surgical treatment. In addition to the front wall, the specialist also removes all tissues affected by the infection, including part of the tooth. Usually after surgery, the gum is completely sutured. In the future, the patient must still visit the dentist’s office at least 2-3 times. The specialist will monitor the degree of healing of soft tissue.
Many are interested in how dangerous this resection of a tooth cyst is. The consequences of the removal of a part of a horse’s tooth are minimal. He continues to perform its basic functions. The only problem is that after such treatment, diseases like pulpitis and periodontitis entail more serious consequences.
How effective is resection of a tooth cyst?
When choosing a method of treatment of a tooth cyst, one should first of all rely on its effectiveness. After cystotomy, cyst recurrence is quite common. Bacteria can remain in the affected tissues and begin to develop again. To prevent this, a course of antibiotics is prescribed during the postoperative period. Preparations will help the body to destroy the remnants of bacteria. Cystectomy is much more effective than cystotomy. In addition, this is the only method of all existing, which guarantees one hundred percent result. After surgery, the infected tissues do not remain at all, which means that the chance of re-development of education is completely excluded.
How much is a resection of a tooth cyst?
As already mentioned, the operation is relatively inexpensive. Cystotomy costs about 5 thousand rubles, and cystectomy from 7 thousand rubles. Compared with other methods, the price of which can reach 20 thousand rubles, it is quite inexpensive.
