Dentigerous cysts are the most common developmental cysts in the jaw region. They are usually associated with the crown of unerupted teeth, odontomas or supernumerary teeth. Dentigerous cysts generally have a chronic, asymptomatic growth phase and are discovered frequently on routine radiographic examination. Occurrence of a dentigerous cyst with an erupted anterior tooth is exceptionally rare and seldom reported in literature. We report an unusual presentation of a dentigerous cyst associated with an erupted mandibular canine. A detailed clinical and radiographic examination augmented its accurate histopathological diagnosis.
