Most of the dental anomalies are accidently discovered either during radiography or due to presentation of any signs or symp- toms. Odontoma are symptomatic and described as the commonest type of odontogenic tumors. The case presented is of an 8-year- old girl presented with missing permanent maxillary right and left maxillary central incisor and a swelling wrt permanent maxillary right central incisor which was provisionally diagnosed as odontoma radiographically and later confirmed histopathologically. The odontoma was causing the impaction of tooth 21. The treatment included surgical removal of odontoma then tooth 21 was orthodon- tically corrected followed by prosthetic rehabilitation of tooth 11.
