Odontomas are benign and the most common odontogenic tumors. They are classified as compound or complex odontomas according to their radiological and histological features. They have slow growth potential and compound odontoma is more common. Since they are generally asymptomatic they may reach in excessive sizes. In our case we would like to present a case with a large (177 denticles) compound odontoma in mandible.
