Cementoblastoma is more often seen

# The cementoblastoma is more often seen:
A. In the mandible than in the maxilla, and more often posterior than in the anterior regions
B. In the mandible than in the maxilla, and more often anterior than in the posterior regions
C. In the maxilla than in the mandible, and more often posterior than in the anterior regions
D. In the maxilla than in the mandible, and more often anterior than in the posterior regions


The correct answer is A. In the mandible than in the maxilla, and more often posterior than in the anterior regions

The cementoblastoma, also known as the true cementoma, is a rare benign neoplasm of cementoblast origin. It occurs predominantly in the second and third decades, typically before 25 years of age. It is more often seen in the mandible than in the maxilla and more often posterior than in the anterior regions. It is intimately associated with the root of a tooth, and the tooth remains vital. It may cause cortical expansion and, occasionally, lowgrade intermittent pain. Radiographically, this is a well-circumscribed radiopaque lesion that replaces the root of the tooth. It is usually surrounded by a radiolucent ring. Because of the intimate association of this lesion with the tooth root, this lesion cannot be removed without sacrificing the tooth. There is no recurrence.

Note: To distinguish this lesion from condensing osteitis - in condensing osteitis, you can distinguish
the root outline.
