Figure 4: Case 4 38/M: (a) Clinical photograph showing a well-demarcated, firm swelling on anterior palate in the midline. (b) Occlusal radiograph showing a large cystic lesion with a mesiodens, appearing like a dentigerous cyst. However, his tooth #11 was discolored and on vitality testing, #11, 21, and 22 were nonvital. Extraction of mesiodense, Surgical fenestration and SealBio was performed. (c) At 8-month follow-up, the patient was symptom-free and palatal swelling had subsided. On radiograph, the radiolucent lesion showed decrease in the size of the lesion. (d and e) The decrease in lesion size can be better appreciated in the cropped up image of occlusal radiographs immediately after surgery and at 15 months. Note the complete lamina dura regeneration around #11 and 21 in the follow-up X-ray
