 What are Dental Cysts?

A dental cyst is a closed-off cavity filled with semi-solid or liquid material. Cysts commonly establish themselves in the soft tissues of the mouth & face such as the gums, and lips, and even in the space surrounding a tooth that has yet to emerge from the jaw bone. These growths are usually noncancerous (benign), but they can be aggressive and cause issues for bordering bone & tissues.


  • Inappropriate positioning of permanent teeth.
  • Atypical tooth development.
  • A Complication of a root canal treatment.
  • Development of wisdom teeth.
  • Dead teeth are a perfect environment for cysts.
  • Mutation in cells that are involved in normal tooth growth.

Symptoms of dental cysts

  • Sensitive or sore teeth.
  • Gaps between teeth or displacement of teeth.
  • Loose teeth.
  • Discomfort when pressing on a specific gum area.
  • Gum swelling.
  • Numbness in the face (cyst pressing on a nerve).

 How to remove dental cysts?

 The only effective treatment for dental cysts is exeresis, a surgical procedure that involves removing the cyst from the patient. The surgery is performed by the best oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Ahmedabad and can be done under local or general anaesthetic, depending on the situation.

 Apart from excising the cyst, it’s also important to treat its cause. For example, the tooth responsible can be extracted, or a root canal can be performed to treat the infection.


 A beautiful smile is something that everyone wants. However, various dental conditions can complicate having the perfect smile. Malocclusion is one such condition that can affect your teeth' function and appearance. A healthy mouth starts from the inside out – with your teeth. Since malocclusion directly affects your teeth, it can also affect your oral health.

What is Malocclusion?

 Malocclusion is a bite that doesn’t align properly from front to back. It's often characterized as having crooked teeth or a poor bite.

 In general, there are three types of malocclusion: underbite, overbite, and crossbite.

  • Openbite: An open bite is a malocclusion where the top teeth and bottom teeth do not come together or bite in the correct position and also called an underbite. Openbite is considered one of the more severe forms of malocclusion because it can lead to significant decay, eating and chewing difficulties, mouth breathing, speech issues, and sleep apnea. In addition, an open bite can also lead to gum disease and TMJ problems.
  • Overbite:  An overbite is a too-large overlap between the top teeth and the bottom teeth. A proper bite requires a small overbite – generally 1 to 2 mm. An overbite is also a serious form of malocclusion because it can lead to wear and tear and decay on the upper front teeth due to their extended length. In addition, an overbite can cause TMJ problems.
  • Crossbite: occurs when both the upper and lower jaws shift too far in one direction or another. This causes the teeth to meet at an abnormal angle, and it can cause significant damage because of this. In addition, crossbites often lead to TMJ problems.

In addition to types of malocclusion, your dentist will also diagnose malocclusion as being class I, II, or III. These different classes of malocclusion are as follows:

  • Class I: A class I malocclusion means that the molar position, or bite, is normal, but there are other teeth that are misaligned in some way.
  • Class II: Classified by a severe overbite that causes the upper teeth to drastically overlap the lower teeth, possibly due to a small lower jaw.
  • Class III: Classified by a severe underbite that causes the lower teeth to overlap the upper teeth, possibly due to a large lower jaw.

How does malocclusion affect oral health?

As we stated before, malocclusion can take on different forms, and each form can cause its own set of problems. In general, however, malocclusion can lead to:

  • Sensitivity on the teeth caused by enamel wears due to their abnormal alignment
  • Decay on the teeth due to damaged and/or worn enamel, as well as bacterial accumulations on overlapping teeth
  • Gum disease, as bacteria can easily accumulate in the crevices between teeth that are not properly aligned
  • TMJ problems due to increased jaw stress, which can cause pain in the jaw, headaches, and other issues

Treating Malocclusion

Orthodontic treatment, like aligners, is used to correct malocclusion concerns. You’ll have to see the best orthodontist in Gujarat or the best aligner expert specializing in alignment techniques to move your teeth safely and effectively. Orthodontic treatment often includes:

  • Braces or other aligners
  • Removing teeth in the case of crowding
  • Surgery to correct severe jaw alignment concerns‌
  • Use of retainers following treatment to maintain your new tooth alignment

 Overall malocclusion is a very common problem, characterized by an improperly aligned bite that can cause a variety of oral health problems. There are different types and classes of malocclusion, all of which can affect your oral health in specific ways. If you are not happy with your smile because of malocclusion, it is important to visit a dentist.
