Cementoblastoma Associated with Maxillary First Bicuspid: A Case Report

Paranjyothi MV, Litha ., Kumarswamy KL, Manjunath K


Cementoblastoma is an uncommon true odontogenic neoplasm of functional cementoblasts which form a large mass of cementum or cementum–like tissue on the tooth root. The most common site for occurrence of cementoblastoma is mandibular molar area with 50% of the cases involving the mandibular first molar teeth.We report a case of a benign cementoblastoma associated with permanent maxillary first bicuspid and discuss the various differential diagnosis.
