Oral surgery. Surgical removal of cyst

Surgical Removal of a cyst. This patient had one of the worst cysts I had ever seen at the time, but his gums were able to heal well after the surgery.

Oral Surgery Case Study 3

Extraction of the supernumary tooth before permanent teeth erupt

Extraction of the supernumerary tooth on a pediatric patient. If left in place, the permanent tooth could be blocked out of its normal position and fail to erupt. The lower photo is an apicoectomy of a failed root canal. I am cleaning out an infected area around the root and sterilizing the apex. I then sealed the apex with a new plug of gutta-percha or IRM.
