Jaw
Cysts & Tumours

A jaw cyst is a pathological cavity filled with fluid rarely seen in the jaws. These cysts can expand in size and weaken the bone. Sometimes they also resorb the roots of the tooth and can cause fracture of the jaws. Benign jaw tumours are also rarely seen which causes expansion of the jaws. They may initially present causing numbness on that side of the jaw or of the lower lip. These jaw tumours if untreated can become very large and may necessitate removal of the jaw itself.
