Odontomas are the most frequent hamartomatous developmental abnormality. The condition is frequently associated with one or more unerupted teeth and is often detected through the failure of teeth to erupt at the expected time. Although most cases are found impacted within the jaw, there are instances where odontomas have erupted into the oral cavity. Majority of the odontomas are asymptomatic nonetheless these anomalies can cause delayed eruption, impaction, or even result in retention of primary teeth. Odontomas are atypical calcified conglomeration of dental tissues such as enamel, dentin, pulp, and cementum and emerge from odontogenic epithelium thus, they are mixed odontogenic tumor. According to the literature, its origin can be local trauma, infection, or genetic mutations, however, the exact cause is unknown. This case report presents a compound composite odontome in a 25-year-old patient along with its related clinical and radiological manifestations and the surgical management and emphasis on the early diagnosis and treatment planning.
