Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of dentigerous cysts in children treated with marsupialization. Study design: 35 dentigerous cysts from 35 children treated with marsupialization were included in the study. The age of the children ranged from 8 to 13 years old. Results: The findings of our study showed that the outcome of dentigerous cysts treated with marsupialization is successful resulting with the eruption of teeth and regeneration of bone. Accordingly a successful outcome was achieved either with or without the help of an orthodontic treatment. Postoperative follow-ups were un-eventful in all patients during a 5 year period. Conclusion: The results of the present study demonstrate that marsupialization may be a better choice of treatment for dentigerous cysts in children rather than the standard treatment.
