NUNEZ CASTANEDA, Lorena et al. Erupting complex odontoma: A case report. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp.8-12. ISSN 0719-0107.

Odontomas consist of enamel, dentin, cementum, and pulp tissue. Histologically, they are classified into 2 groups: compounds and complexes. They are also clinically classified into 3 types: Central odontoma (intraosseous), peripheral odontoma (extraosseous or soft tissue odontoma) and erupted odontoma. Epidemiologically they are reported as the most frequent odontogenic tumor, however, the eruption of this type of lesion is rare, and odontoma occurs only in 1.6% of cases.

Keywords : Odontoma; Odontogenic tumors; Erupted odontoma.
