Abstract
dontomas generally appear as small, solitary, or multiple radio-opaque lesions found on routine radiographic examinations. It is a comparatively common odontogenic tumor, and may lead to interfere with the eruption of its associated tooth. In general, odontomas occur more often in permanent dentition and are very rarely associated with primary teeth. This report deals with five rare cases of primary teeth impaction associated with odontomas, with spontaneous eruption occurring in all five cases after simple surgical removal of the odontoma. Impacted primary teeth may be associated with defects in development and eruption of their permanent successors, and thus long-term observation is necessary until the permanent successors erupt.
Key Words: Odontoma, Primary teeth impaction, Spontaneous eruption
