Abstract

Abstract

Odontomas are one of the most common tumours of odontogenic origin. They are usually asymptomatic but may be associated with retained primary teeth or missing permanent teeth. Though the exact aetiology is unknown, the postulated causes include trauma, infection, inheritance and genetic mutation. Early diagnosis and management will result in fewer complications. Conservative surgical excision is the treatment of choice. This case report presents a treated case of compound odontoma associated with delayed eruption of the permanent central incisor in a nine-year-old boy.

Keywords: Compound Odontoma.
