Dilated Invaginated Odontome In A Lingually Inclined Mandibular Central Incisor: A Case- Report With 6 Months Follow Up
It is rare to detect odontoma in periodontal practice, because of their indolent behaviour. Dens invaginatus is a developmental malformation related to shape of the teeth. Dilated invaginated odontome is most severe variant of dens invaginatus with dilation of root or crown. This dilated odontoma can be of many morphological variations. Only a few case reports were documented in the literature, with eruption of an odontoma. This report presents an unique case of dilated odontoma associated with an erupted tooth in the mandible anterior region which was lingually inclined, in a 17-years-old male patient.
