ABSTRACT

Complex odontomas consist of a conglomerate mass of enamel, dentin and cementum which bears no anatomic resemblance to a tooth. The majority of these lesions are completely asymptomatic, being discovered on routine radiographic examination or when films are taken to determine the reason for tooth eruption failure. Compound odontomas seldom cause bony expansion, but complex odontomas often cause slight or even marked bony expansion. Complex odontomas are mostly associated with permanent teeth and very rarely associated with deciduous teeth. They are usually located in the first-or second-molar areas of the mandible. This report presents a case of a patient with impaction of a maxillary primary canine by a complex odontoma in which surgical excision of the lesion was performed. And the primary canine was repositioned right under gingival level for spontaneous erution. Follow-up after six months showed spontaneous eruption ofthe repositioned maxillary primarycanine.
