Knowledge of the normal tooth eruption pattern is essential for the identification and appropriate treatment of missing teeth. A delay between the exfoliation of a deciduous tooth and the eruption ofits permanent successor may be related to a disorder known as dental retention. A case of compound odontoma that had caused delayed eruption of a maxillary central incisor is presented here. The odontoma, a collection of multiple tooth-like structures, was surgically removed and the impacted incisor was replanted in its position with composite resin splint. The healing was uneventful.
