Marsupialization as definitive management of a large dentigerous cyst in an eleven year old boy—A case report
Dentigerous cysts are benign odontogenic cysts associated with the crowns of permanent teeth. They rarely cause enlargement and displacement of associated teeth. Here, we present a case of an impacted mandibular second premolar associated with a large dentigerous cyst managed conservatively with a one and half year radiographic follow-up.
