Aim: Surgical excision of an odontome to facilitate the spontaneous eruption of the impacted incisor. Background: Odontomas are the most common odontogenic hamartomas worldwide. They are included under benign calcified odontogenic tumors. Basically, they are divided into two types, complex and compound odontomas. Case description: A 11-year-old female child reported for a routine dental checkup when a missing left permanent maxillary lateral incisor was noticed. Further investigations revealed compound odontoma. Conclusion: Early detection of these tumors is essential to avoid lengthy corrective treatments at a later stage. Clinical significance: Odontomas are generally asymptomatic. Because they are asymptomatic and do not cause any changes in the bone, they are often diagnosed during a routine dental examination. Complex odontomas are commonly found in the posterior jaw, while compound odontomas are found in the anterior jaw.
