ABSTRACT:Odontomas are asymptomatic bone lesions that frequently cause delayed eruption/impaction of the accompanying tooth. They are discovered by chance on radiographic imaging when the permanent tooth is delayed in eruption, usually in the second decade of life. The canine, maxillary central incisors and wisdom teeth are the most commonly affected teeth by odontomas. Here we report a case of 31-year-old female patient with a swelling associated in the lower left mandible and with the retained primary canine. On radiographic examination, multiple denticles were found hindering the path of eruption of the permanent canine. The treatment protocol involved surgical removal of the odontoma and the impacted canine. Early identification of odontomas enables simple management, cost-effective treatment, and better prognosis.
