One of the most common developmental odontogenic cysts is the dentigerous cyst which de- velops due to fluid accumulation between the reduced enamel epithelium and the tooth crown of an unerupted tooth. It was found that dentigerous cysts are often asymptomatic unless there is an associated acute inflammatory condition. The management of those cysts varies from one patient to another depending upon the age of the patient and the bases that the pathological process can be controlled locally without injury to the vital adjacent host structures. The purpose of this study was to report the eruption of an impacted permanent mandibular right second molar tooth after marsupialization of an associated dentigerous cyst. Twelve months after marsupialization, the cyst completely disappeared and the second molar fully erupted uneventfully. In conclusion, in young patients and during mixed dentition period, the aim of the surgical management of isolated or localized dentigerous cysts associated with unerupted permanent teeth should be directed to the preservation of the tooth for successful eruption and in the same time elimination of the pathologi- cal lesion. This could be achieved through marsupialization of the cyst as reported in this study.
The aim of this study was to present a proper surgical management of a dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted permanent mandibular right second molar tooth to facilitate a successful eruption of the tooth and to avoid its surgical removal together with the cyst.
