Maxillary Residual Cyst removal – the story of Kanaga
A 36-year-old female patient Kanaga(name changed) reported to Jerush dental and facial corrective centre, Thuckalay, Tamilnadu, with a chief complaint of slowly progressing swelling with low pain on the maxillary right front region since 2 months duration.
According to the patient swelling was gradually increasing and there was no pus or bleeding discharge. The patient had a history of tooth extraction in the same area about 7 years ago following an accident with facial injuries.
The surgical removal of the cyst was carried out under local anaesthesia and strict asepsis through an intraoral approach. The sectioned gross specimen disclosed yellowish, solidified pus-like material covered by a thin-layered soft capsule. Now we are glad to hear that Kanaga is totally recovered.
