cementoblastoma

 [se-men″to-blas-to´mah]
an odontogenic fibroma whose cells are developing into cementoblasts and in which there is only a small proportion of calcified tissue.

ce·ment·o·blas·to·ma

(sē-men'tō-blas-tō'mă),
A benign odontogenic tumor of functional cementoblasts; it appears as a mixed radiolucent-radiopaque lesion attached to a tooth root and may cause expansion of the bone cortex or be associated with pain.

cementoblastoma

/ce·men·to·blas·to·ma/ (sĕ-men″to-blas-to´mah) a rare, benign odontogenic fibroma arising from the cementum and presenting as a proliferating mass contiguous with a tooth root.

cementoblastoma

[simen′tōblastō′mə] pl. cementoblastomas, cementoblastomata
Etymology: L, caementum + Gk, blastos, germ, oma, tumor
A rare, benign odontogenic tumor representing a true neoplasm of cementum that primarily affects mandibular permanent first molars in children and young adults under the age of 30 years. Radiographically, it appears as a well-defined radiopaque mass surrounded by a thin radiolucent halo. Treatment consists of enucleation of the tumor and removal of the involved tooth or teeth. Not to be confused with cementoma.

The closest differential is cementoblastoma (Figure 11), which occurs in children and fuses to the tooth root, unlike cementosseous dysplasia.
6 In addition, cementoblastoma must also be taken into consideration as a differential diagnosis.
The differential diagnosis for osteomas includes exostosis, chondroma, chondroblastoma, benign osteoblastoma, or osteochondroma, fibrous dysplasia, ossifying fibroma, condensing osteitis, and odontoma or cementoblastoma in the teeth-bearing areas.
Among the radiopaque lesions two cases were odontomas (67%), and one case was cementoblastoma (33%).
Other lesions had a lower incidence, such as myxoma (3%), CCOT (3%), cementoblastoma (2%), COF (1%), and CEOT (1%).
Benign cementoblastoma is one of 4 World Health Organization recognized cemental neoplasms.
Clinical differential diagnosis included an odontogenic keratocyst, dentigerous cyst, ameloblastoma, odontoma, calcifying epithelial odontogenic cyst, benign cementoblastoma, benign osteoblastoma, and central ossifying fibroma.
El diagnostico diferencial debe hacerse clinicamente con el granuloma local esclerosante piogenico, radiograficamente debe diferenciarse de la Osteomielitis, de la Displasia Fibrosa ya que esta posee bordes mal definidos y del Cementoblastoma debido a que este ultimo tiende a fusionarse con la raiz del diente afectado.
The differential diagnosis includes fibrous dysplasia, osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma, cementoblastoma, periapical or focal cementoosseous dysplasia, juvenile COF, chronic osteomyelitis, Garre's osteomyelitis, and psammomatoid ossifying fibroma.
Other lesions included in the differential diagnosis are osteoma, ossifying fibroma, and cementoblastoma.

Tooth root tumors are also referred to as cementoblastomas.
