Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Cementoblastoma is a rare odontogenic tumor with few cases reported in the literature involving deciduous teeth.

CASE REPORT:

A painful intraoral swelling in a young girl close to a primary mandibular first molar presented as a well-defined radiopaque mass attached to the tooth root. After enucleation and histopathological analysis the final diagnosis was cementoblastoma.

DISCUSSION:

This case highlights the relevance of cementoblastoma to dentists and maxillofacial surgeons, since this condition may mimic other intra-osseous maxillary lesions and require patient-specific treatment.
