An eruption cyst is a benign, developmental cyst associated with primary or permanent teeth. It usually resolves with the eruption of tooth and is asymptomatic in nature. But if it gets symptomatic or infected, it requires treatment. The present article reports a clinical case with a conservative treatment approach for the management of bilateral eruption cysts in a 15-month-old child.
