This week I have an interesting case of a lateral dentigerous cyst to share. A lateral dentigerous cyst is a dentigerous cyst that is coming off the lateral aspect of a tooth. As with a typical dentigerous cyst, you will be looking for an enlargement of the dental follicle surrounding an impacted tooth.
This case is on the developing permanent mandibular left canine (#22). Check out the images.
If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below. Thanks and enjoy!
