Maxillary Chronic Inflammatory Odontogenic Cyst: A Case Report



Residual cyst, maxillary cyst


Residual cysts are inflammatory odontogenic cysts of the jaw. They are mainly retained radicular cysts after tooth extraction. These lesions are asymptotic and have the potential to damage and infect adjacent bone. In addition, they may resemble more serious lesions and tumors on radiographs. It could be argued that early detection and correct diagnosis are critical for effective treatment of residual cysts. The present case report discusses some technical aspects of surgical treatment of a large maxillary midline residual cystic lesion.
