  • It should also be determined whether or not the cyst was formed from tooth tissue or surrounded by a connective tissue. (gotsportment.us)
  • The high prevalence of tooth impactions and dental infections that occur in the bones of the jaws is also significant to explain why cysts are more common at these sites. (wikipedia.org)
  • Non-odontogenic cysts form from tissues other than those involved in tooth development, and consequently may contain structures such as epithelium from the nose. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dentigerous cyst, the second most prevalent cyst, is associated with the crown of non-erupted tooth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Odontogenic cyst are a group of jaw cysts that are formed from tissues involved in odontogenesis (tooth development). (wikipedia.org)
  • The cyst cavity is lined by epithelial cells derived from the reduced enamel epithelium of the tooth forming organ. (wikipedia.org)
  • Periapical is defined as "the tissues surrounding the apex of the root of a tooth" and a cyst is "a pathological cavity lined by epithelium, having fluid or gaseous content that is not created by the accumulation of pus. (wikipedia.org)

  • buccal
  • Palatine cysts are those located at the mid-palatine raphe, while alveolar cysts are found on the buccal, lingual or crest of alveolar ridge. (wikipedia.org)

  • alveolar
  • Radiographically, it is a well-circumscribed, monolocular, round, radiolucent defect, 1-3 cm in size, usually between the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) and the inferior border of the posterior mandible between the molars and the angle of the jaw. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is a superficial cyst in the alveolar mucosa. (wikipedia.org)
  • Depending on their exact occurrence, the cysts can be classified into palatal and alveolar cysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • incisive
  • Although it was originally postulated that the cyst formed from trapped epithelial cells during embryonic fusion of the palatal bones, it is now thought that it forms from oronasal ducts present within the incisive canals. (wikipedia.org)
  • palmar or plantar
  • In a small proportion of cases, basal cell carcinoma also develops as a result of basal cell nevus syndrome, or Gorlin Syndrome, which is also characterized by keratocystic odontogenic tumors of the jaw, palmar or plantar (sole of the foot) pits, calcification of the falx cerebri (in the center line of the brain) and rib abnormalities.
