The patient is a healthy 42 year old woman. The cyst appeared 8 months after good endodontic treatment. The patient had pain and discomfort for a few days. We did a root resection of tooth #22 (10), followed by a cyst enucleation with histopathology examination. We used a kind of dedicated micro tool, similar to the Gracey curette, to remove part of the cyst from behind the root (from the palatal side). Without this tool it would have been much more difficult. The bone defect was then filled with Bond Apatite (2cc).
Good healing with no clinical symptoms were observed during 3 and 6 month follow ups.
