Compound odontoma is a malformation typical of young adults below the age of 20, with a slight preference for the male gender and the anterior region of the maxilla. Clinically asymptomatic, it can be detected during a radiological investigation in connection with the persistence of deciduous dental elements and the impaction of definitive ones. The treatment of choice is excisional surgery and recurrence is a rare event. The need for orthodontic therapy for impacted elements is usually not necessary because in most cases, odontomas are small, circumscribed lesions the size of a permanent tooth. In this article, the diagnostic and therapeutic surgical excision procedure is presented in three patients at developmental age with large compound odontomas associated with at least one retained canine, and in two of the cases, with serious transmigration to the impacted tooth elements.

Abstract

Compound odontoma is a malformation typical of young adults below the age of 20, with a slight preference for the male gender and the anterior region of the maxilla. Clinically asymptomatic, it can be detected during a radiological investigation in connection with the persistence of deciduous dental elements and the impaction of definitive ones. The treatment of choice is excisional surgery and recurrence is a rare event. The need for orthodontic therapy for impacted elements is usually not necessary because in most cases, odontomas are small, circumscribed lesions the size of a permanent tooth. In this article, the diagnostic and therapeutic surgical excision procedure is presented in three patients at developmental age with large compound odontomas associated with at least one retained canine, and in two of the cases, with serious transmigration to the impacted tooth elements.
