Dental Professionals believe that the earlier detected cyst, the easier it is to cure. Therefore, they advise their patients at least once a year checkups and check 'suspicious' teeth. Especially those that have been sealed up for more than ten years ago, or hidden under the crown.

The easiest way to save the patient from a cyst — to snatch a damaged tooth and gums clean. Ten years ago, dentists do so. Patients were deprived of a "healthy" tooth and criticized doctors, and they just shrugged their shoulders: other ways to get to the cyst does not exist. Recently, in the treatment of cysts and granulomas occurred a revolution: now you can get rid of the cyst, while retaining the tooth.

For the treatment of cysts and granulomas are used surgical and therapeutic methods. Each of them has its pros and cons. That which method choose treatment, the doctor decides the patient individually.

Surgical treatment

Among the surgical techniques most often usedcystectomy: An operation in which a cyst removed and damaged the tip of the tooth root. Its main advantage — 100% reliability. Disadvantage: The operation is quite complex, carry it to the molars dare not every surgeon.

Another type of operation — hemisection. This is a less gentle removal of the cyst. It is carried out when there is no possibility to keep one of the roots of the tooth. The doctor surgically removes a cyst completely removes a dud root and the tooth above it. After hemisection of the resulting defect fix crown.

For operations tooth can not be saved in only two situations: if it is entirely in the cyst and very unsteady, or destroyed almost to the ground.

Therapeutic treatment

Therapeutic treatment allows you to save the patient from a cyst without surgery. It is ideally suited for the treatment of granulomas.

Of course, such treatment is less stressful for the patient. However, it can be time consuming and does not guarantee 100% to get rid of the cyst.

Dental therapist do not cut, it gets to the cyst roundabout way. In the first phase of treatment, he reams and cleans the infected tooth root canal from bottom to top. Deep in the gums tooth root becomes a cyst, so its contents through the resulting stroke is now free to flow out. The doctor carefully cleans the root canal disinfection solutions, introduces anti-microbial drugs and substances that destroy skin cysts. Continue treatment you can just after the cystic cavity is completely cleared of damaged cells and microbes.

At the next stage the doctor fills it with a special paste that will help grow healthy bone tissue at the injury site. After this tooth seal up and wait. If after six months on the radiograph cyst is not found, it means that the treatment was successful. Using this method can not destroy the cyst approximately 70% of cases.

More progressive non-surgical treatment of cysts and granulomas dentists consider depoforez. It allows you to eradicate the infection once in all the root canals of the tooth, not just in one, reamed doctor. The essence of the method is as follows. In the extended channel diseased tooth introduced a special suspension — hydroxide copper-calcium. Under the influence of a weak electric current starts to move material and penetrates into all inaccessible corners drill (including and cyst) and injured cells and destroys all bacteria.

After three sessions depoforez the cleaned tooth put the seal, and the remainder within hydroxide copper-calcium continues to monitor the healing process. Advantages of the method: it helps to get rid of cysts in 95% of cases. Disadvantage: not in any dental clinic has technical equipment for depoforez.
