Surgical Management of Compound Odontoma Associated with Unerupted Tooth.

Pacifici A, Carbone D, Marini R, Pacifici L - Case Rep Dent (2015)

Bottom Line: In compound odontomas, all dental tissues are arranged in numerous tooth-like structures known as denticles.A case of a 20-year-old male patient with a compound odontoma-associated of impacted maxillary canine is presented.A minimally invasive surgical technique is adopted to remove the least amount of bone tissue as far as possible.

ABSTRACT
Odontomas represent the most common type of odontogenic benign jaws tumors among patients younger than 20 years of age. These tumors are composed of enamel, dentine, cementum, and pulp tissue. According to the World Health Organization classification, two distinct types of odontomas are acknowledged: complex and compound odontoma. In complex odontomas, all dental tissues are formed, but appeared without an organized structure. In compound odontomas, all dental tissues are arranged in numerous tooth-like structures known as denticles. Compound odontomas are often associated with impacted adjacent permanent teeth and their surgical removal represents the best therapeutic option. A case of a 20-year-old male patient with a compound odontoma-associated of impacted maxillary canine is presented. A minimally invasive surgical technique is adopted to remove the least amount of bone tissue as far as possible.

Mentions: After 2 years, the implant rehabilitation was planned: the implant (BioHorizons implant, BioHorizons Inc., Birmingham, Alabama) was placed and traditional two-stage loading protocol was adopted. Periapical radiographs taken at the time of implant placement showed no signs of recurrence or complications at the surgical site (Figure 9). After three months, the definitive prosthetic restoration will be performed with a cemented porcelain-fused-to-metal single-unit crown.
