Abstract

History. Fauchard, in 1728 (quoted in Toller 1967), was the first to suggest that cystic swellings of the jaw were associated with teeth. The term “dentigerous cyst,” however, was introduced by Paget only in 1853, when it was used in reference to various odontogenic cysts (Toller 1967).

Synonyms

Dentigerous cyst dysontogenetic dental cyst coronal cyst
