Odontomes represent a hamartomatous malformation rather than a neoplasm. Compound odontome bear same superficial anatomical similarity to normal teeth. The presence of the odontomes is the common cause of failure of eruption of the teeth present adjoining them. In the cases where impacted teeth are present in favorable position, these teeth can be made to erupt at a suitable position in dental arch. This is a case report of interdisciplinary management of compound odontoma. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • This case shows the importance of multidisciplinary management of impacted incisor associated with odontomes.
  • Each specialist is important at various stages of treatment, everyone needs to be consulted to prevent any irreversible damage to patient
  • Orthodontist and periodontist need to be in continuous touch throughout the treatment in order to maintain the periodontal integrity of such cases.
  • Root resorption may ensue in the teeth that are moved from an ectopic position; endodontist must be consulted whenever it is suspected.
