Title:  Odontomas in developmental age: confocal laser scanning microscopy analysis of a case

Abstract:  Background Odontomas are the most common benign odontogenic tumors (especially in children and adolescents) and consist of odontogenic ectomesenchyma and odontogenic epithelium with the formation of dental hard tissues. They are also simply considered hamartomas. The WHO Classification defines them as complex and compound odontomas. The diagnosis is often occasional, in conjunction with x-ray routine examinations, or it is suggested by eruption disorders or abnormal position of teeth in the dental arch. The mainstay therapy is surgical excision of the lesion followed by orthodontic treatment to take in the arch the impacted teeth. Case report The aim of this work is the presentation of a case of mandibular bilateral compound odontoma in a young patient, and the confocal laser scanning microscopic analysis of the surgical specimens.
