Ossifying fibroma (OF) is benign uncommon tumor usually unilocular occasionally multilocular fibro-osseous lesion, mainly involves craniofacial skeleton arising from the cells of the periodontal ligament, composed of fibrous connective tissue with a variable amount of mineralized materials. Mostly smaller in size diagnosed incidentally during routine dental radiographs, larger lesions the patient may complain of swelling with a displacement of teeth. OF shows varying radiographic patterns based on the amount of mineralized tissue and degree of maturation of the lesion. The timely diagnosis and management of the tumor are important to limit the spread and to reduce the morbidity of the patient. This article presents a series of cases of Ossifying fibroma along with the importance of advance imaging in diagnosis of ossifying fibroma.
Key words: Ossifying Fibroma, Giant cement-ossifying Fibroma, Fibro osseous lesion, CBCT.
