Introduction

O ral cysts are not uncommon in dogs.  Many of these cysts are benign and may cause significant amounts of bone and soft tissue destruction.

D entigerous are the most common type of oral cysts we treat at this practice.  Usually an impacted or embedded tooth/teeth that have failed to erupt are the cause.

Exam

T he patient was examined for a painful swelling in the left maxillary area that appeared to be fluid filled.
