Aim: The present study was study to observe incidence of cemental malformations related to mandibular molar roots. Materials and Methods: All cases requiring radiographs of mandibular molars reporting to author during 2011–2019 were included in this study. Mandibular molars had been observed for any radiographic malformations. Any such alterations were noted. Results: Author has screened about 522 intraoral periapical radiographs in this study. A total of 63 cases of root malformations reported with two cases of cementoma were observed in this study. Both these cases were diagnosed as benign cementoblastoma (BC) on excisional biopsy. Conclusion: In this study, we have observed that incidence of cemental malformations is 1.2% and of BC is 0.38% as compared to overall incidence of 1%–6% in Western Maharashtra.
