Treatment of cysts and abscesses Munich
Cysts and abscesses are pathological cavities in the body which are separated from surrounding tissue by a distinct membrane. Cysts are usually filled with fluid or tissue, whereas abscesses are caused by inflammation and are filled with pus. Due to this difference, cysts typically don’t cause any discomfort until later stages, whereas abscesses can be very painful. However, cysts can grow in size and displace or destroy healthy tissue, which is why both phenomena have to be treated. Whether they occur on the teeth, in the jaw or in surrounding tissue such as the oral mucosa: At Dr. Butz & Partner in Fünf Höfe Munich, you will receive a detailed examination and diagnosis, enabling a treatment which will permanently solve the problem.
Our surgical interventions are usually short and can be performed under local anaesthesia. This means that our Munich specialists of oral surgery will numb the affected area before treating it, disabling any sensation of pain. For larger interventions, or if it is your personal wish, we can also offer you treatment under sedation or general anaesthesia.

Cysts are usually fully removed in a small surgical intervention. The ensuing wound will normally completely heal by itself, allowing the tissue displaced by the cyst to regenerate. In rare cases depending on the position within the jaw, it can be advisable to fill the cavity. In this situation, Dr. Butz & und Partner Munich uses high-quality bone substitutes. In any case, we are happy to provide careful follow-up examinations with the latest technology in our oral surgery clinic in Munich.
