Abstract:   (411 Views)
Background and Aim: Complex odontomas are commonly found in the anterior maxilla and mandible, and are typically asymptomatic unless they cause tooth displacement or other complications. Management of odontomas depends on the size and location of the lesion, and may include surgical excision and bone grafting.
Case Presentation: This case report presents a rare case of complex odontoma in a 20-year-old female patient complaining of a maxillary malposed tooth along with a swelling for the past 5 years. The patient underwent excision of the lesion along with extraction of the affected tooth and autogenous bone grafting of the defect site. Histopathological analysis confirmed the provisional diagnosis of odontoma.
Conclusion: This case report highlights the importance of proper diagnosis and management of odontomas to prevent potential complications.
