Case of the Week: Hypercementosis


This week is a fun case of hypercementosis at the apex of a molar root.  Note on the distal root of the first molar a radiopaque mass with a thin radiolucent line around it. This shows that the mass is attached to the root surface with the periodontal ligament space going around it.
