Gingival cyst of the adult

Jump to: navigation, search

The gingival cyst of the adult is a cyst which arises from the rest cells of the dental lamina. It is most common in the mandible near the canines and premolars. Middle-aged adults are more likely to be affected. It appears as a bluish swelling on attached gingiva or interdental papilla.
