This is easily the best video of a surgery I’ve seen. Picture quality is great, everything is in focus, no shakey camera and proper zoom-in offer detailed view of the procedure. The video is of mandibular cyst removal.
The orthodontist first removes piece of jaw bone to reveal the cyst under it. The cyst is then punctured and pus squeezed out. Oozing pus is collected with suction hose. The membrane of the mandibular cyst is then carefully detached from the cavity in which it formed and pulled out through the hole left after removal of tooth.
The teeth of the patient suggested that he/she may need to consider visits to the dentist more often and rediscover tooth brush. I wonder whether the decaying teeth and the formation of the cyst had anything to do with drug abuse – like meth or something. And… even though quite an invasive surgery was necessary to remove that mandibular cyst, it’s still not as bad as oral cancer.
Props to Disgusting from Sweden for the vid 🙂
