The benign cementoblastoma also called as 'true cementoma'. It is rare odontogenic tumor representing less than 1% of all odontogenic tumors. Norberg initially described it in 1930. The WHO defines the benign cementoblastoma as "a neoplasm characterized by the formation of sheds of cementum like tissue which may contain a very large number of reversal line and may be unmineralized at the periphery of the mass or in the more active growth areas. 3 The benign cementoblastoma occurs most frequently under the age of the 25 years with slight predilection for males. Cementoblastoma can occur in both maxilla and the mandible. The mandible however, is involved three times more frequently than maxilla. The mandibular first permanent molar is the most frequently affected tooth. This article describes the rare case of benign Cementoblastoma occurred in a 13-year-old girl with its radiological and histological features.
