Benign cementoblastoma was acknowledged by World Health Organization as an odontogenic tumor originating from cementum. Nowadays, it has been included into tumors of mesenchyme and/or odontogenic ectomesenchyme origin, with or without odontogenic epithelium. This article reports an unusual case of cementoblastoma in a 16-year-old male patient, which involved right mandibular first and second molars causing sharp spontaneous pain radiating to temporal region along with local swelling, which was progressive in nature since 3 months. The lesion showed slow growth and was usually asymptomatic; however, pain and swelling were also been reported in a plethora of cases including the one in this article. Radiographically, the lesion commonly highlights a radiopaque mass often merged with the roots of a tooth, which was enveloped and limited peripherally by a radiolucent halo. The treatment involves surgical excision of the mass along with extraction of involved teeth.
