Dentigerous cyst is the most common type of developmental odontogenic cyst and it is commonly associated with the crown of an impacted tooth. Owing their asymptomatic behavior it is likely to cause significant bone resorption/expansion and tooth displacement. This case report presents a large developmental dentigerous cyst located at the ramus mandible of a 30-year-old female patient that was managed conservatively by surgical approach after 9-month marsupialization treatment.
