Odontomas are the most common type of odontogenic tumor composed of dental tissues such as enamel, dentin, pulp and sometimes cementum. They are benign, slow growing, asymptomatic and may be diagnosed during routine clinical intraoral examination or on radiographic examination. They may sometimes interfere with the eruption of an associated tooth or may erupt in the oral cavity causing malposition of the tooth. Present case report is a case of complex odontoma in the posterior region of the mandible erupted in the place of 2nd molar.
