 # What is usually done with an ‘eruptive cyst’ in the area of the second molar in a two year old child?
A. Observe
B. Incise and drain
C. Excise
D. Fenestrate



The correct answer is A. Observe.

No treatment is necessary as the eruption cyst often ruptures spontaneously. Surgically exposing the crown of the tooth may aid the eruption process.
