Dental granuloma - Definition


Definition


Dental granuloma, also known as apical granuloma, is an infectious disease. It is a small benign tumor that develops at the tip of the tooth root. Its origin comes from bone destruction where a cavity is generated and then filled by this inflammatory tumor. Dental granuloma usually appears following a cavity. An X-ray performed in the dental office can confirm the diagnosis. Treatment consists of disinfecting and sealing the affected cavity. Sometimes extraction is necessary. Dental granuloma usually does not leave scars.
