Dentigerous cysts associated with unerupted teeth are most commonly associated with mandibular third molars. In this case series we evaluate outcome after coronectomy of teeth with associated dentigerous cysts in cases where the inferior dental nerve was thought to be at risk, or there was an increased risk of mandibular fracture. We retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
