Cysts of the jaws are quite a rare finding but do of course occur and are assessed carefully with X-rays and 3D scans.

The usual treatment is enucleation (removal) of the cyst with close follow up to make sure that the cyst does not re-occur. The tissue recovered is sent to the laboratory for analysis.


Treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic, local anaesthetic and IV sedation or occasionally under general anaesthetic.
