Odontomas represent the most prevalent odontogenic tumors in the jaw. The treatment of choice is surgical removal, usually performed by conventional techniques involving ostectomies to expose the tumor. In this paper, the authors describe, through the report of a case of complex odontoma located in the mandibular angle, a more conservative surgical technique called corticotomy, in which the bone removed for access to the tumor (buccal cortical) is repositioned and fixed by titanium plates of 1.5 mm.
