Odontogenic developmental cysts of jaws usually present as asymptomatic lesions. Dentigerous cyst is one variety of these cysts, which may grow to a large size within the jaws before it manifests clinically. This aggressive behavior can be attributed to its potential to transform to ameloblastoma and squamous cell carcinoma. We present a case of nonsyndromic multiple dentigerous cysts associated with multiple impacted maxillary and mandibular teeth manifesting as diffuse swelling of the mid-face and lower face region.
