Odontomas are the most common odontogenic tumors. These tumors are asymptomatic and are generally diagnosed on radiographic examination. The sole management depends on the early diagnosis, histopathological examination, and excision of the pathological tissue. This article presents surgical management of excision complex odontoma in 22-year-old female patient followed with prosthetic rehabilitation with dental implants for replacement of missing teeth. After excision, bone grafts may be necessary depending on the need for further treatment. The present case emphasizes that new bone formation can take place without using any graft materials for the placement of dental implants in a cases of benign pathology.
