 [se″men-to´mah]
a mass of cementum lying free at the apex of a tooth, probably a reaction to injury.

ce·men·to·ma

(sē-men-tō'mă),
Nonspecific term referring to any benign cementum-producing tumor; four types are recognized: periapical cemental dysplasia, central ossifying fibroma, cementoblastoma, and sclerotic cemental mass. When the type is not specified, cementoma usually refers to periapical cemental dysplasia.

cementoma

/ce·men·to·ma/ (se″men-to´mah) any of a variety of benign cementum-producing tumors including cementoblastoma, cementifying fibroma, florid osseous dysplasia, and periapical cemental dysplasia, particularly the last.
gigantiform cementoma  florid osseous dysplasia.

cementoma

[sē′mentō′mə] pl. cementomas, cementomata
Etymology: L, caementum + Gk, oma, tumor
any benign, dysplastic cementum-producing tumor associated with the apices of teeth. It may be present as a mass of fibrous connective tissue, as fibrous connective tissue with spicules of cementum, or as a calcified mass resembling cementum. Radiographically, early cementomas appear as well-defined radiolucencies at the apex of mandibular anterior teeth that are often mistaken for periapical lesions. Older lesions may appear to calcify with time. An important diagnostic indication is that these teeth test vital to vitality testing. Examples are cementoblastoma and cementifying fibroma.
