OdontogenicPeriapical (radicular) cysts:
are the most common in jaws and are usually associated with non-vital teeth. The
treatment of these cysts consists of treating the associated tooth canal and
subsequent surgical enucleation of the cyst. The prognosis is good.
Dentigerous cysts are the 2nd
most common type of cysts among the odontogenic cysts. By definition, this type
of cyst is associated with the dental crown.Odontogenic
This type of cyst can exhibit aggressive
behaviour with several relapses, and is associated with genetic mutations.Non-Odontogenic Cysts
This type of cyst is associated with facial
malformation, such as Globulomaxillary Cysts, Nasolabial Cysts and Nasopalatine
These types of cysts are not cysts in the
true sense of the word because they are not covered with epithelium. However,
examples of pseudocysts are: Stafne Cysts, Traumatic Cysts and Aneurysmal Cysts.
