This study aims to highlight the importance of early diagnosis, timing, optimal treatment sequence and multidisciplinary approach as key factors in the orthodontic management of impacted and retained teeth associated with odontomas.
Literature about classification, epidemiology, aetiopathogenesis, histopathology and therapeutic options about odontomas and impacted teeth in orthodontics was reviewed. Two case reports are presented, showing different timing in diagnosis and surgical removal of odontomas and some biomechanical approaches.
Optimal treatment sequence, multidisciplinary approach, early diagnosis and timing are key factors in orthodontic and surgical-orthodontic management of impacted and retained teeth associated with odontomas
An early removal of the odontoma is certainly a more effective and simpler procedure in the approach to this problem.
