Abstract

Odontoma is the most frequent benign odontogenic tumor in the oral cavity, especially in the anterior sector of the maxilla, with a greater predominance in men in a 1.5: 1 ratio, diagnosed between the first and second decades of life. It is a pathology where the dental tissues are normal, but its structure is disorganized. Regarding the etiology, it is related to trauma, morpho differentiation, genetic disorders and Malassez remains. They are of limited growth, asymptomatic and are responsible for the bone retention of permanent teeth. The therapeutic treatment of choice is surgical excision and they generally do not recur. The following report presents a 28-year-old male patient who attended the Dental Clinic Service of the Faculty of Dentistry of the National University of the Northeast for cosmetic reasons and upper lip discomfort when speaking. The clinical, radiographic and histopathological study confirmed the presence of a complex odontoma erupted above the dental piece 5.4 still present in the oral cavity. It was successfully removed without postoperative complications. This clinical case is of great diagnostic interest compared to other pathologies with similar characteristics. The success of the treatment was the result of a correct clinical, radiographic and histopathological diagnosis.
