Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Odontomas are the most common odontogenic tumors, representing 70% of all odontogenic tumors. They may present in two specific forms; compound odontoma forms multiple small tooth-like structures, while complex odontoma forms an amorphous calcified mass. In this report, we present a 27-year-old male patient with multiple compound odontoma occupied regions at his jaws. The odontomas involve both alveolar and basal processes of the maxilla and mandible as well as both maxillary sinuses. Converse to conventional recommended treatment, which is surgical excision of the lesion, the management was removal of the lesion and clinical-radiologic followup. The first year's follow-up findings are presented in this case report.
