MANAGEMENT OF DENTIGEROUS CYST AND ERUPTION GUIDANCE OF INVOLVED TEETH USING OBTURATOR
 
Abstract
The dentigerous cysts originate through alteration of the reduced enamel epithelium after amelogenesis is completed, with accumulation of fluid between the layers of the enamel epithelium, or between this epithelium and the tooth crown. Next to the radicular cyst, they are the second most common type of odontogenic cyst. They occur over a wide age range with a peak frequency in the 2nd to 3rd decade. A substantial majority involve the mandibular third molars, followed in order of frequency by the maxillary permanent canines, mandibular second premolars, and maxillary third molars. With regard to the treatment of these cysts, the marsupialization procedure with obturator is recommended during the age when the eruptive force of the teeth is still strong. It can be effective when preservation of the displaced teeth is desirable. We treated the dentigerous cyst by marsupialization with obturator and guided the eruption of involved teeth to normal position. And we got the results as follows : 1. Severely dislocated teeth associated with dentigerous cyst erupted into proper position. 2. The enamel hypoplasia and the root deformity were observed some cases. 3. The bone expansion and defect were healed without infection and recurrence.
Key Words: Dentigerous cyst, Marsupialization, Obturator
