The Odontome is a developmental anomaly of dental tissues. It is of two types; Compound and complex. Compound odontomas are two times more common than the complex odontomas and are more commonly seen in maxilla in the incisor-canine region. The complex odontomas are more seen in both the jaws commonly in premolar-molar region. These are rarely associated with primary teeth if present; they are usually of compound type. The purpose of this article is to present a case report of compound odontoma in the maxillary region of a 6 year old girl.
