Abstract

Odontomas are the most common odontogenic tumors of the oral cavity which are nonaggressive, hamartomatous in nature consisting of enamel, dentin and cementum. They are called as composite because they contain more than one type of tissue. They are generally asymptomatic, hence recognised on routine radiologic examination. The compound odontoma is composed of multiple small tooth like structures, whereas the complex odontoma consists of a conglomerate mass of enamel and dentine, which bears no anatomical similarity to the tooth. The eruption and infection of odontoma are uncommon, only few cases of erupted complex odontoma are reported in the literature. We report a case of silent erupting complex odontoma.
