AUTHOR(S): Mahendra Patait, Priyanka Singh, Rashmi Pagare, Sameer Narkhede, Amandeep singh
ABSTRACT: The term “odontome” by definition literally means “any tumor of odontogenic origin.” Known to be benign in nature and slow in growth, odontomes are usually asymptomatic; but may sometimes interfere with eruption of the associated teeth. We report the case of multiple compound odontomes in an 11-year old female patient which caused the failure of eruption of permanent upper left central and lateral incisors. Intra-oral radiographs (occlusal and peri-apical) revealed well-defined radiopacities diagnosed as “multiple compound odontomes”, following which surgical excision was performed.
