I agree with Alan. I think this is a case where we can see the development of the cemento-osseous dysplasia. We can see, first, a largely radiolucent lesion, clearly of periodontal ligament origin, then gradual calcification, but, in this case the calcification seems to begin at the periphery, rather than the classic appearance of it beginning in the centre. As I always reminded my students "Lesions do not read textbooks." Some of them will not follow textbook patterns.
Any other opinions?
Thank you for sharing the images.

The patient came to our radiologic center with a previous diagnostic of a periapical cyst in tooth 35, asymptomatic, X-rays taken for orthodontic routine planning. This original diagnostic was immediately discarded, because imagenologic appearance and positive vitality test. Old X-rays were retrieved for comparison purposes. Your opinion will be very helpful.
