MARTINEZ MARTINEZ, A. et al. Compound maxillary odontoma enucleation with guided bone regeneration. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.6, pp.287-292. ISSN 2340-3152.

Odontomas are the most common maxillary beningn odontogenic tumours, who often causing dental retention, most odontomas are asymptomatic and are discovered during routine radiographic investigations. Furthermore, one of the most severe effect that the clinician must take into account is the large bone loss after enucleation of the tumor, affecting not only bone tissue, but also the surrounding soft tissue, however, many materials have been suggested for filled these types of defects bone. We report a case of a 33-year-old men who express aesthetic disagreement due to persistence of temporary tooth 51 caused by the presence of a compound odontoma, whose diagnosis was confirmed clinical and histologically. The residual bone defect after enucleation of the tumor was filled with non-resorbable hydroxyapatite, for subsequent final restoration. In the postoperative control was observed satisfactory aesthetic and functional results.

Keywords : Odontoma; hydroxyapatite; bone graft; bone regeneration.
