The present paper aims to report the clinical case of a 12-year-old male patient that went to the buccomaxillofacial surgery and traumatology service from Federal University of Uberlândia – Minas Gerais - Brazil, by his dentist recommendation, seeking for evaluation of a radiopaque lesion in the upper canine region perceived during radiographic exams for investigation of prolonged retention of the permanent tooth. In the anamnesis, drug allergies were denied and a convulsive episode for over a year was reported. At the clinical examination, there was an increase in volume at the site evaluated and there was no pain symptomatology. After the tomography analysis, it was possible to detect a predominantly hyperdense image composed of several denticles in the right premaxilla region. The indicated treatment was surgical center exertion under general anesthesia by nasotracheal intubation. Material was collected for histopathological examination, which later confirmed the diagnosis of compound odontoma. Two weeks after surgical removal, the patient was in good general condition, without complains, with reduced edema and without phlogistic signs. After four months, tooth 53 was still present and the patient was instructed to discuss with orthodontist the possibility of permanent tooth traction.
