Ameloblastic odontoma is an odontogenic neoplasm characterized by simultaneous occurrence of an ameloblastoma and a composite odontoma. Radiographic features are those of a central destruction of bone with expansion of the cortical plates. Numerous small radiopaque masses, some resembling miniature teeth, are also seen. Management is by conservative resection.
