Mesiodens, the most common type of supernumerary tooth, usually results in malocclusion, poor esthetics and cyst formation. The occurrence of a dentigerous cyst around the crown of an unerupted supernumerary tooth is infrequent. We present a case of a dentigerous cyst associated with a nonsyndromic bilateral impacted inverted supernumerary tooth in a 13-year-old boy. A thorough clinical workup, including 3-D reconstruction image and histological examination confirming the features of a dentigerous cyst is presented in this report.
