Periodontal Cyst Removal and GTR Grafting
Bone cysts in the upper or lower jaw should be treated when first diagnosed.
The growth process of a cyst destroys and weakens an amount of bone that is larger than the cyst itself. In situtions where a cyst is affecting supportive and connective tissues of teeth, early intervention can assure a strong likelihood of a successful, functional rehabilitation of the affected area..
This patient was diagnosed, via biopsy, to have a Odontogenic Keratocyst which is characteristically aggressive and can be quite invasive as it develops. Because these types of cysts can also be recurrent, it is critical to have them properly diagnosed when they first appear.
Left untreated for too long .... this type of cyst can be very destructive.
In this live surgery demonstration, all diseased and compromised tissue are removed. Bone graft products and GTR (guided tissue regeneration) products are used to create an environment where complete tissue regeneration is possible, providing good stabilization for teeth #21 and #22.
Dr. Schweinebraten uses laser technologies are as needed to assure the highest degree of patient comfort during this rehabilitative perio surgery.
