Mahesh Kumar, Umashankar. D.N, Nanda Kumar, Radhika M Bawle, Sudhakar R


A case of a large dentigerous cyst associated with canine and premolar teeth in the maxillary antrum is presented. This case is of interest because of its inflammatory variant, extensive involvement of the whole maxillary sinus and the presence of teeth in the maxillary sinus. Theoretical aspects of canine impaction and cyst formation are reviewed. The management of a jaw cyst, in particular, and the still popular Caldwell-Luc procedure is discussed.
