They are the second most common odontogenic cysts after radicular cysts  and most frequently associated with impacted mandibular third molar teeth. Dentigerous cysts involving first premolars are rare. This article presents a rare case of dentigerous cyst in a nine year old male patient associated with an unerupted mandibular first premolar.
