The aim of this case report is to present a multidisciplinary treatment administered to a patient with a cystic lesion in the jawbone, in the root region of the incisors, caused by trauma. The report also emphasizes the effect of accurate diagnosis and treatment planning on the prognosis of cyst-associated teeth in the presence of large cystic lesions.

Case report:
A 12-year-old male patient with the maxillary central teeth broken as a result of trauma experienced 3 years ago. In radiographic examination, a round and wide radiolucent area with smooth and distinct borders was observed which included the root of tooth number 11. As a result of the clinical and radiographic examination, it was decided to resect the cyst after consultation with oral and maxillofacial surgery specialists. According to the one-year follow-up results, no pain was felt in the area of the tooth.
