Odontomas are benign odontogenic tumors appearing as small, solitary or multiple radio-opaque lesions on radiographic examinations. Among the two types of odontomas, compound odontomas are painless, with a more limited growth potential than complex odontomas. The majority of odontomas are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally; however, may be accompanied with pain and swelling as secondary complaints in some cases. These lesions, at times, may cause potential disturbances in the eruption of neighboring teeth, such as impaction, delayed eruption or retention of deciduous dentition, henceforth, conservative surgical excision is the treatment of choice. Here, a case of compound composite odontoma is reported, discussing the related clinical and radiological manifestations, the surgical approach performed, and histopathological features.
