Dentigerous Cyst Associated With Mesiodens –A Rare Case Report

Chandramani B More, Hetul J Patel


Dentigerous cyst is a developmental odontogenic cyst, which apparently develops by accumulation of fluid between reduced enamel epithelium and the tooth crown of an unerupted tooth. Dentigerous cyst associated with supernumerary tooth and mesiodens is rare. The usual age of clinical presentation of dentigerous cyst due to supernumerary tooth is during the first four decades. We report a rare case of dentigerous cyst in association with mesiodens in a young male. The review is discussed with emphasis on differential diagnosis.
