Dr. Rajat Kapoor  | Dr. Mudunuri Ravi Teja | Dr. Purak Misra
Abstract: Odontomas are considered to be hamartomas rather than neoplasms, and are composed of natural teeth tissues: enamel, dentin, and cementum and pulp tissue. They are broadly classified into compound odontoma (small tooth like structures) and complex odontoma (a conglomeration of dentin, enamel and cementum). Generally, odontomas have been associated with trauma during primary dentition as well as with inflammatory and infectious processes, hereditary anomalies (Gardner syndrome, Hermann's syndrome), odontoblastic hyperactivity and alterations in the genetic components responsible for controlling dental development. This study presents a rare case of complex odontoma in primary dentition in the mandible a child of 5 year. Till now only 11 cases of complex odontoma in primary dentition were reported in literature, youngest being 4years old.
