Paradental cyst associated with supernumerary tooth fused with third molar: A rare case report.

Prakash AR, Reddy PS, Rajanikanth M - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2012)

Bottom Line: There is no difference between men and women in incidence.A history of recurrent pericoronitis is reported usually and there is often the presence of a communication between the periodontal pocket and the cyst.We present a rare case report where in partially erupted mandibular third molar is fused horizontally with a supernumerary tooth with paradental cyst.

ABSTRACT
Fusion is the union of two tooth buds that are normally separated. Fusion is more frequent in deciduous teeth, particularly in the anterior region. The etiology of fusion is not known. It has been suggested that the pressure of adjacent dental follicles produces their contact and fusion before calcification. There is no difference between men and women in incidence. The term paradental cyst means that such type of cysts that are close proximity with the root of a tooth. A history of recurrent pericoronitis is reported usually and there is often the presence of a communication between the periodontal pocket and the cyst. We present a rare case report where in partially erupted mandibular third molar is fused horizontally with a supernumerary tooth with paradental cyst.

Figure 1: OPG showing mandibular third molar fused with supernumerary tooth

Mentions: A 28-year-old female patient was referred to the outpatient department with pain in the left lower region since 1 year. Clinical examination of the oral cavity revealed a partially impacted left third mandibular molar, with pericoronitis distal to it associated with pain. OPG revealed mesio-angular partially impacted third molar with radiopaque mass attached to the crown of the molar distally. A well-defined radiolucency was also noticed in association with impacted tooth. The supernumerary tooth was fused with the partially impacted mandibular left third molar horizontally with distinct crown, which was pushing the roots of the third molar, but separated with a radiolucent line in few areas [Figure 1].
