The term odontoma was first coined by Broca in 1866, who defined it as tumor formed by overgrowth of complete dental tissue. Odontomas constitute about 22% of all odontogenic tumors of the jaws. A Female patient of age 15years was referred to department of Periodontics from Orthodontics, for diagnosis and treatment of the mass which was interfering with retraction of teeth 21 and 22 for orthodontic alignment. Radiographs and histopathological reports revealed it to be a compound odontoma which was removed by surgical approach. Early diagnosis and proper management of odontomas is necessary to prevent later craniofacial complications and other developmental problems. Early diagnosis of odontomas allows adoption of a less complex and less expensive treatment and ensures better prognosis.
