Abstract

  Dentigerous cysts are the second most common benign developmental odontogenic cyst after radicular cyst. The meaning dentig- erous is “tooth bearing” and is coined by Paget in 1853. Reasonable theories suggest that it is arising because of the fluid accumulation between the crowns of impacted, embedded or unerupted teeth. 70% of dentigerous cysts occur in the mandible and 30% in the maxilla. Ectopic eruption of teeth in non-dental area (mandibular condyle, chin, palate, coronoid process and maxillary sinus) and dentigerous cyst associated with ectopic teeth within maxillary sinus are rare entities.. In this paper, the successful surgical management of a dentigerous cyst associated with ectopic teeth within left maxillary sinus and also reviewing existing literatures of such cases.
