Abstract

Dentigerous cyst is one of the most commonly seen odontogenic cyst in children. It is characterized by a
unilocular radiolucent lesion that encloses permanent tooth buds. Buccal bony expansion and a missing tooth
is the most common clinical feature. Various treatment modalities have been mentioned in the literature for
management of dentigerous cysts. This case report presents the management of a left mandibular dentigerous
cyst in a 10-year-old boy by surgical enucleation and its follow up.
