The cementoblastoma is a rare, benign odontogenic tumour. It is generally asymptomatic and usually occurs in young adults. It is more common in males. It is most often associated with mandibular molar teeth and has a characteristic radiographic appearance. This case report is of a young male patient who presented with a cemento blastoma associated with a maxillary second molar. The initial presentation was to his dentist with pain, which was assumed to be of dental origin. This case highlights the importance of adequate radiographic investigation and appropriate interpretation in forming a diagnosis. It also serves as a reminder that rare odontogenic tumours may present initially in primary care and it is essential that all practitioners are aware of them.
