This case highlights the removal of three large cysts, with apicoectomy and filling of the defect.
Multiple extractions, cyst removal and the reconstruction of maxillary bone defects. Rehabilitation with a temporary removable prosthesis, and 6 months post-op the final skeletal prosthesis is placed.
A large periapical lesion involving teeth #22 (10) and #23 (11). Cyst enucleation and apicoectomy were performed. Two year post-op photos show the entire defect filled with true bone.
The root of #35 (20) was resected, with a backfill of the root canal with MTA. Cyst enucleation was confirmed with histopathology examination. The bone defect was filled with Bond Apatite® (0.5 cc).
The cyst appeared 8 months after good endodontic treatment. We did a root resection of tooth #22 (10), followed by a cyst enucleation with histopathology examination. The bone defect was then filled with Bond Apatite (2cc).
Periapical lesion and root resorption are demonstrated around the tooth #23 (#11). The tooth underwent repeated root canal treatment by endodontist and courses of antibiotics without improvements.
An 82 year old woman presented with swelling and pain on the left side of the cheek and lip, and Vincent symptom. The cyst was removed, and the defect filled with Bond Apatite. Follow up showed very good bone remodeling, and no inflammatory symptoms were observed.
