Our Oral and Maxilo-facial Surgeons are Specialist Doctors for Oral Cysts and Tumors in Jamnagar
Facial or jaw cyst is the sac of tissue either filled with fluid or some tissue. These cysts develop next to or around teeth which often do not have any symptoms and usually diagnosed during routine dental check-ups. Dental cyst if left to grow can impose serious problems on your dental health in future. Some cysts develop around the root tip due to trauma, crack or decay, while some cysts are formed around un-erupted or partially erupted teeth. A growing cyst can impose problems if they get infected. It can be very painful and cause swelling in the area of growth. These cysts sometimes can cause the untimely exfoliation of adjacent teeth. Occasionally, they can grow big enough to fracture a jawbone. To avoid future complication, surgical intervention is necessary.
At Perfect Dental® we have highly skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeon who diagnose and performs this surgery with utmost precision and minimally invasive and also send tissue sample to laboratory for further investigation if needed .For anxiety ridden patients we provide the facility of conscious sedation or general anaesthesia in order to calm the patient and reduce treatment associated stress and apprehension. In order to make surgery bloodless and completely remove any chances of re-infection and to cause shrinkage of any cystic lesions, we also provide the option of laser application. This eliminates any further chances of infection and leaves you with a smile you always deserved.
Tumour is an abnormal mass of tissues which may form lumps or growth. There are various types and sizes of tumours. Tumours may be non-cancerous, precancerous or cancerous.
Diagnosis of tumour is based on their type and location. This is done by our oral surgeon and oral pathologist as a team using biopsy test performed on the section of tissue taken from the tumour. Treatment of tumours is also based on its location and type. Non-cancerous tumour excision is a delicate job and is usually performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon while the cancerous ones are treated with chemotherapy, radiation or surgery performed by an Onco-surgeon and health care team.
