VAZQUEZ DIEGO, J.; GANDINI PABLO, C.  and  CARVAJAL EDUARDO, E.. Dentigerous cyst: diagnosis and resolution of a case. A review of the literature. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2008, vol.24, n.6, pp.359-364. ISSN 2340-3152.

A clinical case of dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted lower right second premolar in a 13-year-old male patient, is reported. An extraoral oblique lateral technique of the ramus and a parallel intraoral technique were used to locate the cyst and to perform a presumptive diagnosis of the lesion. A surgical procedure was then carried out to remove the impacted tooth and also to enucleate the cyst, which was sent to the laboratory for a histo-pathological study; this study confirmed our earlier presumptive diagnosis. Finally, we decided to follow-up the case. Based on our findings, dentigerous cyst is analyzed according to its location, sex and age of patients and most affected jaw, after reviewing the literature on this subject.

Keywords : Dentigerous cyst; radiographic techniques; surgical treatment; impacted tooth; clinical case.
