Abstract

Odontomas are odontogenic harmatomas which are composed of hard dental tissue. This lesion is composed of more than one type of tissue and, for this reason, has been called a composite odontoma. Odontogenic cysts are derived from epithelium associated with the development of the dental apparatus. Dentigerous cyst originated after the crown has been completely formed by accumulation of fluid between the reduced enamel epithelium and the crown. It also associated with crown of impacted tooth. Cystic odontomas are closely similar to dentigerous cysts clinically and radiologically. Treatment of choice is total removal(enucleation) or decompression(marsupialization). We represent two cases of Cystic odontomas with literature review in 69-year old male and 55-year old female occured in anterior maxilla. The leisions were successfully treated by marsupializaion.
