Parul Singhal, Ayushi Jindal, Samir Dutta, Ritu Namdev


The mandibular infected buccal cyst is a relatively uncommon inflammatory odontogenic cyst that typically presents in children between the ages of 4 and 13 on the buccal aspect of vital mandibular permanent molars. The lesion classically presents with swelling and may be associated with delayed eruption of the involved tooth. The differential diagnosis of mandibular infected buccal cyst includes the radicular cyst, odontogenic keratocyst, lateral periodontal cyst, gingival cyst, dental follicles, and the dentigerous cyst. Familiarity with this cyst is essential to avoid unnecessary extraction of the associated permanent molar tooth.
