Odontomas are a type of mixed odontogenic tumor made up of mineralized ectomesenchymal tissue. Odontomas are divided into two categories by the World Health Organization: complex and compound. They are commonly observed in regular radiography tests and can be caused by a variety of factors. They are, however, rarely linked to impacted teeth. Through a clinical case report, this study attempts to highlight the clinical and histological aspects of this rare dental tumor. In the present case report, a 28-year old male patient visited with a complaint of impacted anterior tooth and swelling. After a thorough clinical and radiological examination, it was decided to excise the growth by curettage. On histological investigation, the tissue was diagnosed with complex odontoma. One-year follow-up of the case revealed excellent healing with no sign of recurrence.
