Cysts of the jaw and surrounding soft tissue
A cyst is a cavity in bone or soft tissue surrounded by a wall and usually filled with liquid. They are caused by inflammation or developmental anomalies.
Therapy of this condition is a partial or full removal through surgery.
As an example, if a cyst lies in the maxillary sinus, the latter is opened and the cyst removed while preserving as much of the mucosal membrane as possible.
Naturally, we use keyhole surgery, i.e. with an endoscope.
Cysts in lips or the base of the mouth are a common problem and need to be removed as well.
