Dentigerous cyst is reported to be one of the most common odontogenic cysts of the jaws.1,2 The most commonly involved teeth are mandibular third molars, maxillary canines, maxillary third molars and rarely maxillary anteriors.2,3 This case report is about the management of a dentigerous cyst associated with a mandibular second molar (37) in a 9-year-old girl by a conservative treatment plan of marsupialization of the cyst. A 2-year postsurgical review reveals complete disappearance of the cystic lesion and normal alignment of 37 and 38.
