Abstract

 &ndsp;Odontomas are nonaggressive, hamartomatous developmental malformations composed of mature tooth substances and may be compound or complex depending on the extent of morphodifferentiation or on their resemblance to normal teeth. The majority of odontomas are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally; however, may be accompanied with pain and swelling as secondary complaints in some cases. Hence, such type of lesion may cause disturbance in adjacent teeth eruption pattern, like impaction or delayed eruption or retained deciduous dentition. For this reason, a conservative surgical excision is needed as a treatment plan. Based on clinical, radiographic, histopathological features, a case report of compound composite odontoma is being discussed in this article.
