VAZQUEZ DIEGO, J.; GANDINI PABLO, C.  and  CARBAJAL EDUARDO, E.. Compound odontoma: Radiographic diagnosis and surgical management of a clinical case. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2008, vol.24, n.5, pp.307-312. ISSN 2340-3152.

A clinical case of a compound odontoma associated with a supernumerary tooth and an upper right impacted canine in a 16-year-old male, is reported. To perform the diagnosis, several radiographic studies were made, mainly consisting of panoramic and intraoral techniques. Then, a surgical procedure was carried out to remove both the lesion and the surrounding tooth structures. The histo-pathological examination confirmed our presumptive diagnosis. Therefore, based on these findings, the compound odontoma is analyzed according to its location, sex and age of patients as well, after reviewing other authors´ opinions in the current literature.

Keywords : Compound odontoma; impacted canine; supernumerary tooth; radiographic techniques; surgical procedures; clinical case.
