A dentigerous cyst is the second most common odontogenic cyst after the redicular cyst. It is most commonly associated with impacted mandibular third molar. Most common treatment for dentigerous cyst is intraoral enucleation; however, extraoral removal is required in rare cases. Here we are reporting a case of dentigerous cyst associated with an impacted mandibular third molar that required an extraoral approach for enucleation and reviewing the different rare treatment options for the dentigerous cyst.
