Bilateral dentigerous cysts--report of an unusual case and review of the literature.

Author information

Department of Dentistry, Sunnybrook Health Science Centre, Toronto, Ont.


Dentigerous cysts are the most common developmental cysts of the jaws, most frequently associated with impacted mandibular third molar teeth. Bilateral dentigerous cysts are rare and occur typically in association with a developmental syndrome. The reported occurrence of bilateral dentigerous cysts in the absence of a syndrome is rare and, to date, only 11 cases have been described. Here, we report a case of bilateral nonsyndromic, dentigerous cysts and review the literature for this unusual finding.
