Rights and Permissions

Odontomas are among the most frequent odontogenic tumors of the jaws that generally appear as single or multiple teeth-like radiopaque lesions. As reported in the literature, they often interfere with tooth eruption and are usually discovered by routine panoramic radiographs. This case report shows a compound odontoma and the associated impaction of the underlying mandibular permanent right cuspid in an ASA II 10-year-old male Caucasian patient. Treatment plan involved surgical excision with histopathological analysis. No signs and symptoms were observed over 6 months of follow-up.
