Dentigerous cyst is one of the most prevalent odontogenic cysts and thought to be due to a developmental abnormality from the reduced enamel epithelium of the tooth forming organ . Rarely, they are associated with supernumerary teeth which constitutes approximately 5-6% of all dentigerous cysts . Swelling of the alveolus with or without pain remains the major complaints of the patients. This report highlights an uncommon symptom of cacosmia as the only presenting complaint in a dentigerous cyst associated with a supernumerary tooth.
