Abstract

Dentigerous cyst is the most common bony lesion of jaws in children. It is one of the most prevalent type of odontogenic cyst associated with erupting or impacted teeth, particularly mandibular third molars; other teeth which are affected commonly are maxillary canines, maxillary third molars, and rarely incisors & supernumerary tooth. Dentigerous cysts account for more than 24% of jaw cysts & only 5% are associated with supernumerary teeth. Compound composite odontome has a prevalence of 67% in anterior maxilla but only 28% of odontomes are associated with dentigerous cyst. Here with we reported a 12 year old boy with an unusual case of Dentigerous cyst in anterior maxilla associated with inverted impacted mesiodens and an compound composite odontome.
