Compound Odontoma in Deciduous Dentition

Author(s): Mathew AK, Shenai P, Chatra L, Veena KM, Rao PK, Prabhu R

Odontomas are benign tumors containing all the components of the odontogenic tissue. Disturbances in tooth eruption are one of the most common complications associated with odontomas. They are generally asymptomatic and are usually seen in second and third decades of life, rarely seen below 10 years of age. Herewith, we report an unusual occurrence of compound odontoma in a 4‑year‑old child visualized as a swelling of the cortical bone in the anterior maxilla.
