Cyst/Tumor Removal

cyst-tumor-removalOccasionally, a cyst ( a fluid filled balloon) or benign tumor can form around impacted teeth (wisdom teeth) or other portions of the upper or lower jaw.  When this happens, the cyst or tumor can destroy the surrounding jaw bone.  The presence of a cyst or tumor in the upper or lower jaw generally requires removal of the cyst or tumor by an oral surgeon.  Our office can evaluate the extent of the lesion with images from a CT scan or radiograph and discuss treatment options with you.
