This case presented with a through-and-through cyst above the upper right central incisor #21 (#9). An implant is planned in the mid to long term however there was inadequate bone at presentation to consider this. After discussion with the patient, it was agreed to perform an apicectomy in order to allow bone infill prior to extraction. The cyst was removed, the apex removed and the defect filled with Bond Apatite®.
