AUTHOR(S): Saima Tariq, Rizwan Hamid and Shazia Maqbool
ABSTRACT:The aim of this study was to evaluate the cases diagnosed with odontoma according to age, gender, localization and types. A total of 27 patients were included in this study that were diagnosed with odontomas radio logically. On the panoramic radiographs, odontomas were identified as involving upper and lower jaw according to their localizations, and according to their types -complex and compound odontoma. When odontomas were evaluated according to their localizations, it was seen that 17 cases involved maxilla (62.9%) and 10 of them involved mandible (37.1%). When evaluated according to their type, 20 of the 27 cases (74.1%) were found to be compound odontoma and 7 (25.9%) were found to be complex odontoma. When the types were evaluated according to their localizations; three cases in the maxilla were found to be complex (21.4%), and 14 of them were compound (78.6%); 4 of the cases in the mandible were found as complex (40%) and 6 of them were found as compound (60 %) odontoma. Odontomas are more common in the upper jaws and compound types are more common than complex types.
