Odontoma seems to result from budding of extra-odontogenic epithelial cells from the dental lamina. This cluster of cells forms a large mass of tissues that may be deposited in an abnormal arrangement, but consists of normal enamel, dentin, cementum and pulp. World Health Organization (WHO) classification defines a lesion as a malformation in which all the dental tissues are represented in a more orderly pattern than in the complex odontoma so that the lesion consists of many tooth-like structures. This article presents a report of five cases of odontomes.
