Cyst

A tissue sac which becomes filled with fluid. If left untreated it will gradually enlarge and cause the surrounding bone to resorb. Cysts are most frequently found at the pointed bottom [apex] of a dead or infected tooth. They are rarely associated with any symptoms in their early stages but can become infected and painful.
