For how long does it take for your tooth to grow after you get the surgery for compound odontoma?

In brief: Need evaluation

Often when odontoma present the associated tooth is congenitally missing.
If tooth is present, in good position, well angulated, and the end of the root has not apex infield (matured), there is a small chance that tooth will erupt spontaneously. See an orthodontist about what needs to be done to bring impacted tooth into place.
