Abstract: Adenomatoid odontogenic tumors are rare, benign, non invasive lesions. AOT commonly occurs in anterior maxilla, common in females of younger age and commonly associated with impacted canine. It shows clinical and radiographical similarities to other odontogenic cysts like dentigerous cysts. They can be definitely diagnosed with the help of histopathological examination and it is important to confirm the diagnosis to prevent multilating surgeries. AOT can be treated with simple enucleation and curettage with low rate of recurrence (0.2 %). Here we present six cases of Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor treated with surgical enucleation and curettage.
