Paradental cyst mimicking a periodontal pocket: case report of a conservative treatment approach


Pelka, M; van Waes, H (2010). Paradental cyst mimicking a periodontal pocket: case report of a conservative treatment approach. International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 39(5):514-516.

Abstract

A 7-year-old boy presented with a periodontal problem related to an erupting lower molar. The tooth showed a 15 mm deep periodontal pocket on the buccal aspect. A microbiological DNA test excluded a periodontal origin. The treatment consisted of local antimicrobial therapy and cleaning and filling of the pocket with Atridox. 2 years after therapy the pocket completely disappeared. Finding periodontal pockets on freshly erupted teeth with acute symptoms should suggest the diagnosis of a cyst. This could prevent surgical endodontal or periodontal therapy. This problem can be managed effectively with minimal therapy and local antibiotics.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
