Cementoma is an odontogenic tumor of cementum. It usually occurs after root development is finished, found predominantly in African American women older than 40. It is found most commonly in the mandible in the region of the lower molar teeth. It causes distortion of surrounding areas but is a usually painless growth, at least initially. Considerable thickening of the cementum can often be observed. A periapical form is also recognized.
