Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia is one of the terms that have been designated by the World Health Organization as cemento-osseous dysplasias of the jaws. The word 'florid' was introduced to describe the wide spread, extensive manifestations of the disease in the jaws. The term florid cement-osseous osseous dysplasia (FCOD) was first suggested by Melrose et al in 1976 to describe a condition of exuberant multi quadrant masses of cementura and/or bone in both jaws and in some cases, simple bone cavity like lesions in affected quadrant .The word 'florid' was introduced to describe the wide spread, extensive manifestations of the disease in the jaws.

(a) Periapical/focal cemento-osseous dysplasia. Fairly well-defined radiopaque masses attached to the apices of the vital, caries free lower anterior incisor teeth. (b) Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia. Diffuse sclerotic radiopaque masses present bilaterally within this edentulous mandible.

subgroups of cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD) [1,2]. The other COD lesions are focal cemento-osseous dysplasia and periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia [1]. This classification based on clinical characteristic, location and radiographic features [2,4]. These clinical features include lesions' localization and

Cemento-osseous dysplasia(COD) is the most common fibro-osseous lesion faced in clinical practice and affects the tooth-bearing areas of the jaws.1,2 COD is represented as a benign lesion arising from undifferentiated cells of the periodontal ligament tissues.3 This lesion is classified into three subtypes according to its clinical and radiographic

Cemento-osseous dysplasia is another variant of fibro-osseous lesion which commonly involves mandible of females. We report a case of an unusual presentation of cemento-osseous dysplasia in a 13-year-old which posed a diagnostic dilemma clinically and histopathologically, due to its close resemblance to cemento-ossifying fibroma.

says that periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia is a condition related to osseous lesions [2]. The etiology and pathogenesis of this entity are still unknown. On the other hand, clinical and histological evidences show this condition has a histogenetic origin derived from the periodontal ligament [29]. Periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia exhibits a predilection for melanoderm women, at mid-age (40-

Orthodontic treatment and cemento

This report presents a case of florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD), affecting the mandibular teeth, in a 23-year-old Somalian patient for whom orthodontic treatment was undertaken. The presenting features of the patient and the effect of orthodontic treatment on this case are discussed.

Periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia typically arises in the anterior mandible and involves one or only a few teeth. Another limited form that occurs in the posterior jaw and typically involves molar teeth is called focal cemento-osseous dysplasia. Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia typically involves two or more jaw quadrants 32). Cemento-osseous dysplasia has a strong gender and racial predisposition, with most

Differential Diagnosis: Based on the presentation of the bilateral bony lesions, vitality of the teeth, and absence of any symptoms, as well as the radiographic appearance, the condition is consistent with focal cemento-osseous dysplasia. This is a benign fibro-osseous condition.

Cemento-osseous dysplasia is a group of disorders known to originate from periodontal ligament tissues. Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia clearly appears to be a form of bone and/or cementoid tissues restricted to jaw bones. This lesion is usually asymptomatic and is incidentally detected during routine radiographic examination.

Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a benign jaw lesion originating from periodontal ligament tissues usually asymptomatic and diagnosed accidentally at routine dental radiographic examination. The purpose of this paper is to report three cases diagnosed as FCOD with their clinical, radiographic and histological findings.

Jul 09, 2011Focal osseous dysplasia (FOD) is one of the benign fibro-osseous lesions of the jaw bones and the most commonly occuring benign fibro-osseous lesion. This entity occurs more commonly in females and has a predilection for African Americans.

Apr 17, 2012Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a benign fibroosseous condition that can be seen in dentulous and edentulous patients. It is an asymptomatic lesion and needs no treatment; however, follow-up is essential due to the possibility that it can progress to a condition called florid cemento-osseous dysplasia.

Nov 13, 2018Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a rare, benign, multifocal fibro-osseous dysplastic process affecting tooth-bearing areas of the jaw, characterized by replacement of normal trabecular bone with osseous tissue and dense acellular cementum in a fibrous stroma.

Florid cemento

Nov 14, 2018Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a condition that occurs in the jaw bone, especially close to where the teeth are formed. People with FCOD develop lesions in the jaw, were spots of normal bone are replaced with a mix of connective tissue and abnormal bone.

Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a benign fibroosseous condition that can be seen in dentulous and edentulous patients. It is an asymptomatic lesion and needs no treatment; however, follow-up is essential due to the possibility that it can progress to a condition called florid cemento-osseous dysplasia.

Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FLCOD) is the most dramatic and rare variant of the cemento-osseous lesions. Normal cancellous bone is replaced by dense, a cellular cemento- osseous tissue. FLCOD has been proposed in the 2nd edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) and defined as "Lobulated masses of dense, highly mineralized, almost a

a neoplasm (8). Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FLCOD) was initially reported as florid osseous dysplasia by Melrose et al(9) who described a condition that has come to be accepted as the most clinically extensive form of cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD), thus the use of the term florid. The diagnosis of FLCOD is a clinical and radiographic one,

Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a benign fibroosseous condition that can be seen in dentulous and edentulous patients. It is an asymptomatic lesion and needs no treatment; however, follow-up is essential due to the possibility that it can progress to a condition called florid cemento-osseous dysplasia.

Based on the location and number of lesions there are three types of COD: the periapical cemental dysplasia or cementoma, the florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) and the focal cemento-osseous dysplasia [1]. FCOD typically affects women of African-American or Asian descent during their 3rd -5th decades of life [1, 4].

Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia. Definition: This is a rare, benign fibro-osseous dysplastic process distinct from other CODs by its distribution restricted to the apical region of vital posterior teeth, especially in the mandible. Although the etiology of CODs is unknown,

are indicative of osseous dysplasia in elderly women in Senegal. Keywords Osseous Dysplasia, Jaws, Secondary Infection, Senegal 1. Introduction . According to the WHO, osseous dysplasia or cementoma is a benign odonto-genic tumor of the jaws, with a predilection for melanoderm women [2] [3] [1] [4] [5]. The pathogenesis remains unknown [7] [8].

Cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD) is an asymptomatic benign condition with an unknown etiology or pathogenesis. There are three types of cemento-osseous dysplasia that have been documented: Periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia (occurring in the anterior mandible region).
