Describe Periapical Cemento-Osseous Dysplasia
-discovered on routine radiographic examination
-Most commonly in the anterior mandible of patients older than 30
-More common in women than in men
-Predilection for this disease in black women
-Early lesions are well circumscribed and radiolucent and may mimic periapical inflammatory disease
-Bone at the apical area of multiple teeth may be involved
-Teeth in the affected area are vital unless carious or traumatized.
-With time lesions become increasingly calcified, therefore, older lesions become radiopaque and may appear radiolucent with central opacifications.
How is Periapical Cemento-Osseous Dysplasia diagnosed?
Clinical and Radiographic. Historical and clinical information are also important. Pulp testing confirms that teeth are vital. Biopsy may be necessary in cases in which the characteristic radiographic features are not evident. Microscopic examination reveals a fibro-osseous lesion
