Erupting maxillary anterior odontoma: Report of an unusual case

AUTHOR(S): Lt Col Parvinder Sharma, Dr. Aishwarya Pandey, Dr. Gayathrie B, Dr. Abhishek Singh and Dr. Nikita Sindhu
ABSTRACT:
Odontomas are passive hamartomatous tumours made of cementum, dentin, and enamel. It is the most common odontogenic tumour. Since they often exhibit no symptoms, they are accidently detected on standard radiologic examinations. They are of two types- complex and compound. It is quite unusual for odontomas to erupt into the oral cavity and be clinically exposed. There have been limited number of cases reporting an erupting odontoma. Complex odontomas are typically found in the posterior region of the mandible, while compound odontomas are more frequently observed in the anterior region of the maxilla. In this case report, we report an atypical case of an erupting complex odontoma in the anterior region of the maxilla in a 30-year-old male.
