Odontomas are developmental anomalies of the dental tissues that may interfere with the eruption of the associated tooth. These lesions are generally asymptomatic and are usually detected on routine radiographs. Morphologically odontomas can be classified as complex, when present as irregular masses containing different types of dental tissues, or as compound if there is superficial anatomic similarity to even rudimentary teeth – the denticles. The present report describes the surgical management of a case of compound odontoma in 11-year-old boy who presented with a complaint of missing tooth in maxillary anterior region. After the lesion was surgically removed under local anesthesia, histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of compound odontoma.
