• cystic
  • The removed cyst must be evaluated by pathologist to confirm the diagnosis, and to rule out other neoplastic lesions with similar clinical or radiographic features (e.g., cystic or solid ameloblastoma, central mucoepidermoid carcinoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • However, sometimes these masses are considered neoplasm: Keratocyst Calcifying odotogenic cyst According to the current (2005) classification of the World Health Organization, both (parakeratizied) odontogenic keratocyst and calcifying odotogenic cyst have neoplastic characteristics, thus renamed as Keratocystic odontogenic tumor and Calcifying odotogenic tumor, respectively.

  • periodontitis
  • It is known to play a pathonogenic role in necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis and necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis, worsening preexisting periodontal disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesion
  • The vast majority of cysts expand slowly, and the surrounding bone has time to increase its density around the lesion, which is the body's attempt to isolate the lesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • radiographs
  • It is similar to the lateral periodontal cyst in all its features except that its polycystic nature is often evident through its multilocular pattern on radiographs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most cysts do not cause any symptoms, and are discovered on routine dental radiographs. (wikipedia.org)
  • The PDL appears as the periodontal space of 0.4 to 1.5 mm on radiographs, a radiolucent area between the radiopaque lamina dura of the alveolar bone proper and the radiopaque cementum. (wikipedia.org)
  • abscesses
  • The Synergistetes inhabit a majority of anaerobic environments including animal gastrointestinal tracts, soil, oil wells, and wastewater treatment plants and they are also present in sites of human diseases such as cysts, abscesses, and areas of periodontal disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • lumen
  • Focal thickened plaques of proliferating lining cells often project into the lumen areas which is commonly seent in this cyst. (wikipedia.org)
