Delayed eruption of a maxillary central incisor associated with an odontome: report of case.

A case is presented in which a maxillary left central incisor was delayed in its eruption. At initial examination, there was no known etiological factor; two years later, however, an intraoral radiograph revealed a substantial odontome. Treatment consisted of surgical removal of the odontome and application of orthodontic traction to the unerupted tooth. Histological examination confirmed a diagnosis of complex odontome.
