Eruption cyst is a benign cyst associated with a primary or permanent tooth in its soft tissue phase after erupting through the bone. This case report documents a rare case in which the presence of supernumerary tooth hindered the normal eruption of permanent right maxillary central incisor subsequently the deficient space resulted in the formation of eruption cyst. The treatment included the extraction of supernumerary tooth followed by the surgical exposure of crown of the tooth associated with the eruption cyst. The present case report illustrates that the treatment of choice must be case specific with adequate analysis of clinical and radiographic findings and should be managed appropriately in order to minimize complications to the developing and erupting tooth.
