At Spire Roding Hospital in Redbridge, we offer private surgery to remove jaw cysts for patients from Essex, East London, North London and surrounding areas. All of our procedures are carried out by highly experienced surgeons in a clean, private and comfortable hospital environment.
A jaw cyst is an abnormal fluid filled pocket under your jaw bone.
During jaw cyst removal, an incision is made in the jaw near the cyst. If the cyst is small, it can be removed easily and the space that is left (pocket) is scraped clean. If it is large or has caused damage, the surgeon may also remove tooth roots, whole teeth and/or some jawbone. The removed tissue and fluid is sent to the laboratory to find out what type of cyst it is.
Jaw cyst removal generally lasts between half an hour and an hour and is usually done as a day case with no overnight stay in hospital required.
