Odontomas can be found in association with other dental abnormalities, such as the calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC).
In addition, less likely consideration included locally aggressive odontogenic lesions, such as ameloblastic fibro-odontoma, as well as other entities consisting of calcifying odontogenic cyst (Gorlin cyst), adenomatoid odontogenic tumor, and primordial cysts (keratocyst).
The pathological changes associated with the impacted 3rd molar are cystic changes which include Dentigerous cysts ,Odontogenic keratocyst and Calcifying Odontogenic cyst .Ameloblastoma ,Myxoma and Odontogenic fibroma are the commonest neoplasms .Soft tissue pathological changes are hyperplasia's ,inflammation and calcification are the common findings around the impacted 3rd molar teeth.
