VERBEL BOHORQUEZ, J.; RAMOS MANOTAS, J.  y  DIAZ CABALLERO, A.. Periapical radiography such as a tool in the diagnosis and treatment of periapical cyst. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.1, pp.25-29. ISSN 2340-3152.

Introduction: The periapical cyst is a common inflammatory lesion of the jaws. When the cyst reaches a significant size, it cause a deformity of the affected bone, retention or displacement of adjacent teeth. The case of a patient was presented who went to dental appointment because the presence of painful symptomatology during food consumption. A clinical examination revealed that gingiva was red and swollen at tooth 14; radiographically evidenced a unilocular radiolucency which covered the dental organ. The lesion was excised surgically with the subsequent application of sealant material. After surgery, was evidenced healing and the patient was no longer in pain. Discussion: We report a case of periapical cyst, which occupied the dental organ periapex upper right posterior. Radiographically evidenced minimal variability in the size of the image. Its resection is described and we inform the histopathological findings. In the literature review we found the importance of the choice of periapical x-rays in the endodontic area, and its role in the diagnosis, treatment planning and monitoring of the teeth and surrounding tissues involved, despite the drawbacks of traditional radiographic technique.
