Apical tooth abscess is linked to the development of cavities. It is an alveolar bone involvement located in contact with the dental apex with the formation of a granulation tissue. This granulation tissue may contain germs (latent infectious focus). A bone gap of less than and/or equal to 5 mm is called a granuloma. A bone gap of more than 5 mm is called a cyst.
