The purpose of this paper is to describe the case of surgical management of massive compound odontoma with 36 denticles in a 9-year-boy who presented with a complaint of pain and swelling in mandibular left posterior region and retained 74. The denticles were removed after the removal of retained 74 completely and wound healing was observed. Odontomas are considered as hamartomatous dental malformation rather than true neoplasm of odontogenic origin. They are the most commonly occurring abnormally formed dental tissues that interfere with eruption of associated teeth. The eruption disturbances seen due to odontomas are delayed eruption or deflection of associated teeth. These malformations are usually asymptomatic and discovered during routine radiographic investigations. Correct diagnosis followed by proper treatment plan results in a favorable prognosis.
