Complex Compound Odontoma Associated with an Unerupted Tooth: A Rare Entity
Odontomas are odontogenic benign tumours composed of enamel, dentine, cementum, and pulp like tissue which are generally discovered during diagnostic radiography and are often asymptomatic. According to World Health Organisation (WHO), odontoma are classified as compound and complex odontomas. Compound or complex odontoma are commonly reported in the oral cavity but very rarely an odontoma may show features of both. This paper reports a rare case of an odontoma with both compound and complex features, occurring in the upper front region of the jaw associated with impaction of right permanent maxillary central incisor.
