Bagewadi SB, Kukreja R, Suma GN, Yadav B, Sharma H - Imaging Sci Dent (2015)

Bottom Line: Odontomas are nonaggressive, hamartomatous developmental malformations composed of mature tooth substances and may be compound or complex depending on the extent of morphodifferentiation or on their resemblance to normal teeth.They are usually asymptomatic in nature.Occasionally, these tumors become large, causing bone expansion followed by facial asymmetry.

ABSTRACT
Odontomas are nonaggressive, hamartomatous developmental malformations composed of mature tooth substances and may be compound or complex depending on the extent of morphodifferentiation or on their resemblance to normal teeth. Among them, complex odontomas are relatively rare tumors. They are usually asymptomatic in nature. Occasionally, these tumors become large, causing bone expansion followed by facial asymmetry. Odontoma eruptions are uncommon, and thus far, very few cases of erupted complex odontomas have been reported in the literature. Here, we report the case of an unusually large, painless, complex odontoma located in the right posterior mandible.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 1: Extraoral photograph shows gross facial asymmetry.

Mentions: Extraoral examination revealed gross facial asymmetry with swelling present on the right lower-third region of the patient's face (Fig. 1). The swelling extended anteroposteriorly from 2 cm posterior to the right corner of the mouth to the posterior border of the ramus, and superoinferiorly from 1 cm below the ala-tragus line to the lower border of the mandible. There were no secondary signs on the overlying skin.
