Cyst

A type of benign tumor that can form around an impacted or diseased tooth. It is filled with fluid, and can hollow out the bone in a patient's jaw to a significant extent. Rarely do cysts spontaneously resorb in response to any treatment; in general they are removed by careful curettage and the missing bone usually regenerates.
