Dentigerous cysts are always associated with an embedded or unerupted tooth; involvement of more than one permanent tooth in a single cyst follicle is exceedingly rare and only a few such cases can be found in the literature. The cysts reported in the literature involving multiple teeth typically consist of mesiodens or odontomas. Here we report a rare case of dentigerous cyst associated with two permanent teeth causing displacement of maxillary canine into the osteo meatal complex and maxillary premolar to lateral nasal wall. The possible etiopathogenesis of such cases is also discussed here.
