RADICULAR CYST: CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOPATHOLOGY & TREATMENT
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
Radicular or periapical cyst, is the most common inflammatory cyst arising due to the proliferation of the epithelial rests in the periodontal ligament. This proliferation is a result of the inflammation induced by bacteria and necrotic products seeping into the periapex through the infected pulp. Hence radicular cysts are most often found in the apices of infected teeth or sometimes in the lateral aspects of roots, when the inflammation spreads through the lateral canals.
