Odontomas are the most prevalent benign tumors in the mouth, they are normally diagnosed after routine X-ray examinations. Between 2010-2015, a total of 1,261 oral surgical interventions were practiced at the School of Dentistry, University of Cartagena. In them, 12 cases of odontoma were identifi ed after reviewing respective clinical histories. In some cases, when odontomas are accompanied by other characteristics, they can be associated to syndromes, such as Gardner’s syndrome. The present report informs of a case with certain characteristics such as possible presence of colorectal polyposis, supernumerary teeth and bone excrescences present in a 12 year old male, therefore, studies were undertaken to determine association to the aforementioned syndrome. Location of odontomas was an inherent characteristic and found to be altered in the previously mentioned case.
