A cyst that develops in children's jaw occasionally disturbs the eruption of the succedaneous teeth. These teeth, however, usually have the potential of eruption. So, if the obstacles to eruption are eliminated, it is possible that the teeth erupt spontaneously to their normal position. In those cases, it usually requires the management of the cyst and the eruption guidance of the displaced teeth. Many surgical procedures have been described for the elimination of cysts. When the cyst is large and displaces the permanent teeth, marsupializaion is a surgical technique that may be preferred to enucleation in treatment of cysts. In marsupializaion, if the opening is maintained properly, it may be possible to manage the cyst and guide the displaced teeth into the normal position. In these cases, the cysts were managed with marsupialization in concomittent application of acrylic obturators, and as a result the displaced permanent teeth were guided into normal position. Even though the etiologic factors of the two cases are different, the treatment was the same. And both cases show that the potential for heal ing is remarkable with spontaneous relocation of displaced tooth, provided the opening is maintained during the eruption of the permanent tooth.
