This report demonstrates the association between the development of a nasopalatine duct cyst and implant surgery, involving 2 implants positioned 4 years after teeth extraction at a site unaffected by any prior local endodontic disease or radiolucency. The cyst was removed and the residual void was filled with deproteinized bovine bone. Two-year follow-up showed no cyst recurrence, the normal anatomy was partly restored, and one of the implants showed clinical signs of re-osseointegration.
