SANTANA, Natália Medella de; REBELLATO, Nelson Luis Barbosa  e  MACHADO, Maria Ângela Naval. Differences in the treatment of a dentigerous cyst: a systematic review. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.1, pp. 85-92. ISSN 1808-5210.

Objective: To analyze what is the proper treatment for a dentigerous cyst. Methods: A search of the Pubmed database was performed and the summary of all the resulting articles were evaluated on the basis of their relevance to the study. Results: Eight papers were selected and the vast majority of these dealt with marsupialization as a form of treatment for a dentigerous cyst. Studies have shown that teeth usually erupt spontaneously within 100 days of marsupialization, but it is necessary to consider factors such as patient age, angle, stage of root formation and whether there is enough interdental between. Conclusion: In the studies examined the treatment protocol for a dentigerous cyst is enucleation. However, for children and adolescents the preferred treatment is marsupialization, owing the preservation of tooth structure.
