Differential Diagnosis for Pericoronal Radiolucencies affecting Jaws – A Case Report on Dentigerous Cyst
Keywords:Dentigerous Cyst, Differential Diagnosis, Impacted Tooth, Pericoronal Radiolucencies
Most of the times it is difficult for the clinicians to confirm the clinical diagnosis without investigations
as the clinical picture of oral lesions may be similar to many other conditions. Hence, appropriate clinical
examination, coupled with radiological and histopathological investigations could aid in appropriate
diagnosis and management of the lesions. This article elaborates on differential diagnosis for pericoronal
radiolucencies affecting the jaws in a patient presented for a routine dental examination. Differential
diagnosis helps us to diagnose a specific lesion by eliminating those lesions which appear clinically similar.
As advanced diagnostic aids are available, decision-making has become much easier for these lesions.
