Dentigerous Cyst in a Young Child

Dr Deeksha Gohil | Dr Shivain Chhabra | Dr Paral Lubana


Abstract: Odontogenic cysts of the dentigerous kind typically develop in the second or third decades of life. It always involves a tooth that cannot finish the eruption process and develops towards the crown as a result of fluid buildup between the layers of enamel. According to research by Sharp and Helsper, a mechanical blockage or an eruptive deviation that affects the tooth germ's normal growth can result in dentigerous cysts (1). Ameloblastomas, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma can also develop from these cysts. It is clinically asymptomatic up until it becomes irritated. To establish the diagnosis, dentists must conduct a thorough dental examination and history on each patient. Clinical examinations and radiographic study interpretation are crucial stages in evaluation. Here, we report the instance of a 10 - year - old child who visited the clinic for a regular dental exam but had no symptoms whatsoever. In the same area, there were no clinical signs of tooth extraction, edema, or discomfort.
