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.

(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.

Cementoblastomas constitute a relatively uncommon benign odontogenic neoplasm of the jaw.
Cementoblastomas constitute a benign neoplasm of cementoblasts and represent the only true neoplasm of the cementum.
Pain, tenderness, and swelling can be seen obviously in most patients with cementoblastomas, although the lesion can be asymptomatic.
In rare cases, cementoblastomas could infiltrate within the pulp and radicular canals of the teeth involved or associate with maxillary wisdom teeth [3, 6].
Mandible is affected in majority of cases; however, benign cementoblastomas involving multiple teeth is reported to occur more commonly in the maxilla, reflecting the high growth potential of those tumors [10].
The benign cementoblastomas are rarely associated with third molars.
Cementoblastomas are slow growing lesions with unlimited growth potential.
The cementoblastoma was first described by Dewey in 1927 as an odontogenic tumor of mesenchymal origin [1].
The final histopathological diagnosis was given as cementoblastoma.
Tooth root tumors are also referred to as cementoblastomas. Microscopically, the bony matrix tends to be abundant in these tumors and to radiate from the tooth root in parallel arrays (Figure 19).
Cementoblastoma is a benign odontogenic mesenchymal tumor that is associated with and attached to the roots of teeth.
Cementoblastoma is fused with a tooth root and generally presents as a slow-growing swelling, often with pain, with expansion of the affected bone.
