Abstract


Among oral pathologic lesions, odontomas are the most common odontogenic tumor of the
jaws and generally asymptomatic. They are mostly diagnosed as a result of routine radiographic
investigation. In this report, we describe a very rare occurrence of bilateral complex odontoma in
the region of the mandibular second premolar. Conservative surgical procedure was planned, and
removal of the odontomas was carried out through the socket after extraction of the deciduous
second molars, and the diagnosis was confirmed with a histopathological study.
Key Words: Odontoma, odontogenic tumors, radiopaque, Tooth, Unerupted
