Odontomas are the most common type of odontogenic tumors. They are included under the benign calcified odontogenic tumors. Odontomas are basically classified into two types, complex and compound odontomes. Generally, Odontomes are asymptomatic. Occasionally, signs and symptoms relating to their presence do occur in form of impactions. The presence of odontomes in the anterior region more often leads to the impaction of the impaction of the permanent anterior teeth. We report a case of a 13year old male, who came to the Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Uttaranchal Dental and Medical Research Institute, Dehradun, Uttarakhand with left maxillary central incisor impaction due to the presence an odontome in the left maxillary central incisor region. The surgical removal the odontome was carried out. Combined approach with surgical exposure and the application of an orthodontic force brought the impacted left maxillary central incisor down to its proper position in the dental arch.
