Cementoblastoma is a rare, benign, odontogenic neoplasm of ectomesenchymal origin, representing less than 6% of all odontogenic tumors. Despite its well-known typical features, there are still controversies regarding the management of the condition. This article presents the case of a benign cementoblastoma in a 17-year-old girl. The lesion was typical and associated with the mandibular right first molar. Endodontic treatment of the involved tooth, enucleation of the cementoblastoma, and apicoectomy of the affected roots were performed. Removal of the tumor while preserving the associated tooth resulted in normal osseous healing and no evidence of recurrence after one year. Based on the findings of the current report, it can be suggested that, in properly selected cases, it is possible to remove cementoblastomas that affect molars without extracting the involved teeth.
