Dentigerous cyst is benign odontogenic cystic lesion that envelops the crown of an impacted tooth. Like odontogenic tumors, dentigerous cysts may grow to large sizes before they are diagnosed, and the large radiolucent cystic lesions associated with an impacted tooth are often diagnosed as odontogenic tumors like unicystic ameloblastoma or others developmental cystic lesions like odontogenic keratocyst, but less likely to be dentigerous cysts.
