Initially it was termed as ameloblastic odontoma, but due to its exceptional mixed nature of growth and incidence of two types of odontogenic tumours with diverse histological and biologic behavior, World Health Organization (WHO) suggested this term to be inappropriate.
Ameloblastic odontomas can be classified into ameloblastic fibro-odontoma and odonto-ameloblastoma.
