Decompression of jaw cysts: two cases of dentigerous and residual cysts

Jaws can be affected by a great variety of cysts, some of which develop at an early age. They are typically treated by cystic enucleation: this intervention is simple and ensures a long-term absence of recurrence. Nevertheless, in some cases of large cysts, a conservative therapeutic management can be adopted. We present the clinical cases of a large dentigerous cyst and a mandibular residual cyst, treated by cystic decompression, allowing the spontaneous eruption of the teeth involved in the dentigerous cyst, and safeguarding the anatomical structures surrounding the residual cyst.


KEY WORDS: Surgical decompression; Dentigerous cyst; Jaw; Tooth eruption
