DENTIGEROUS CYST: CLINICAL FEATURES, RADIOLOGY, HISTOPATHOLOGY & TREATMENT
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
INTRODUCTION AND ETIOLOGY
Dentigerous cyst could be defined as an odontogenic cyst that envelops the crown of an unerupted tooth, caused due to accumulation of fluid between the reduced enamel epithelium and the enamel. This results in a cyst attached to the tooth at the cement-enamel junction, with the crown enclosed in its lumen. However, little is known as to what causes the separation of reduced enamel epithelium from the enamel allowing this accumulation of fluid.
