Title:  Treatment protocol for the impaction of deciduous maxillary anterior teeth due to compound odontoma

Abstract:  Aim The purpose of this paper was to describe the dental and surgical management of the impaction of deciduous maxillary anterior teeth due to compound odontoma. In all analysed patients impaction of the maxillary deciduous canine was associated with the presence of an odontoma. Therefore, impaction of the maxillary deciduous canine can be considered as pathognomonic of the presence of an intraosseous odontoma. The analysis of the described cases showed that early diagnosis and early removal of the odontoma are essential in improving the prognosis of the involved teeth. Early treatment allows the impacted tooth to re-start the physiological eruption. A conservative surgical approach is advisable in order to minimise damage to the impacted teeth and preserve their normal timing and path of eruption.
