Abstract

Odontomas are the most common odontogenic tumours. They are usually asymptomatic and are often discovered during routine radiography. Compound odontomas are regularly calcified tissue that bear similarity to teeth or appear as a collection of small teeth. We report a rare case of compound odontoma in the mandible of an adult patient with clinical and radiological features and a review of the literature.
