Abstract

DENTIGEROUS CYST ASSOCIATED WITH IMPACTED SUPERNUMERARY TOOTH

Dr. Namaswita Nayak, Dr. Supriya Koshti and *Dr. Vaibhav S. Ladke

ABSTRACT

Dentigerous cysts [DC] are the most common type of developmental odontogenic cysts arising from the crown of impacted, embedded, or unerupted teeth, but less common with supernumerary teeth. They are most commonly associated with third molars and maxillary canines. 5% of dentigerous cysts are reported to be involved with supernumerary teeth, where mesiodens is common. This case report describes dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted mesiodens in a patient with swelling in the maxillary anterior region. On radiographic examination well defined radiolucency was seen surrounding impacted mesiodens. Enucleation of the cyst was done along with the removal of the mesiodens. The final diagnosis of dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted mesiodens was confirmed with the help of histopathological examination.
