Odontomas are commonly reported in the dental literature, as they arise from odontogenic epithelium referred as mixed odontogenic tumor. It is considered to be hamartomas rather than tumor, characterized by an abnormal calcified mass of dental tissues like enamel, dentin, pulp and cementum. World Health Organization (WHO) classified odontoma into two types, compound and complex types based on radiological features. The exact etiology is unknown, but based on the literature postulated causes included local trauma, infection, and genetic mutations. Clinically represented as asymptomatic swelling and pain secondary to infection. Here, we report a case of compound odontoma in anterior maxilla in 20 years female patient.
