Bilateral Maxillary Dentigerous Cysts A Case Report
A dentigerous cyst is the second most common Odontogenic cyst, after radicular cyst. It encloses the crown of an unerupted tooth at the cementoenamel junction; the mandibular third molars are the most commonly affected &maxillary canines are next commonly affected. This cyst accounts for approximately 24% of all true cysts of the jaws, and their frequency in the general population has been estimated at 1.44 cysts for every 100 unerupted teeth. This paper reports the presentation of a bilateral maxillary dentigerous cyst and its incidence present in the literature.
