Cementoblastoma is a rare tumor representing only 1-8% of all odontogenic tumors. It is derived from odontogenic ectomesenchyme of cementoblast origin that forms cementum layer on the roots of a tooth. It is also called cementoma. Benign cementoblastomas are predominantly seen in young individuals. The tumor usually involves an erupted permanent tooth affecting most commonly the first permanent molar.
