Abstract

Introduction: Odontomes are most common type of odontogenic tumors. They are generally asymptomatic and discovered on routine radiographic examinations. Morphological classification of odontomes can be doneas complex and compound odontomes. Here we document a case of a 15 year old boy who attended our dental department with apparent malocclusions. A panoramic radiograph revealed presence of multiple radio opaque masses in maxillary as well as mandibular arches. These structures were seen associated with impacted permanent teeth. The histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of them as being complex odontomes.

Keywords: Odontogenic tumor, Odontome, Complex, Compound.
