Adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) is an uncommon tumor of odontogenic origin, constituting only 0.1% of tumors and cysts of the jaw and 3% of all odontogenic tumors. A 14-year-old girl presented with right maxillary anterior swelling, facial asymmetry, continuously increase in size of swelling without any symptoms, and delayed eruption of permanent teeth. Orthopantomogram and computed tomography scan revealed a large unilocular radiolucency in right maxilla with permanent lateral incisor embedded within the lesion and permanent canine pushed away from its normal position. Cyst was enucleated completely under general anesthesia along impacted permanent teeth and retained deciduous teeth. Postoperative period was uneventful.
