Eruption cyst is a benign, developmental odontogenic cyst that accompanies an erupting primary or permanent tooth, forming shortly before the tooth’s appearance in the oral cavity. It usually occurs within mucosa overlying an erupting tooth. In most cases the eruption cyst ruptures on its own as tooth continues to erupt and may not require any surgical intervention. However, if it is associated with complications like pain, bleeding or infection, surgical exposure and drainage may be necessary. This report unveils a case of an nine-year-old female with a long-standing eruption cyst over erupting maxillary incisor along with presence of high frenal attachment. The treatment performed included incision and drainage of the eruption cyst and labial frenectomy in the same appointment using soft tissue laser.
