Aim: This report aims to provide the clinical and radiographic features of two symptomatic Indian patients with florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD), along with a discussion of the differential diagnosis, potential challenges, and therapeutic implications. Background: FCOD is a rare, multifocal, periapical, and bilateral condition involving the premolar and molar region of the posterior mandible and sometimes the maxilla. Case description: The first patient is a 30-year-old female with a recent history of dental pain. The patient was otherwise healthy and the medical history was unremarkable. The second patient is a 50-year-old female with a history of orthodontic therapy. Radiographic evaluation using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) revealed bilateral involvement of the posterior mandible, sparing the entire maxilla in both patients Clinical significance: For a pathognomonic condition like FCOD, a radiology survey alone is often sufficient to arrive at the final diagnosis, and therefore surgical interventions should ideally be avoided.
