Osteomas are relatively rare benign osteogenictumor characterized by the proliferation of compact or cancellous bone. Osteomas can develop as peripheral, central or extraskeletal mass. The peripheral type arises from the periosteum and is rarely seen in the mandible. The lingual surface and lower border of the body are the most common locations of these lesions. They are usually asymptomatic and can be discovered in routine clinical and radiological examination. We are presenting a case of peripheral compact osteoma originating from the buccal surface of the mandible in a 58-year-old woman.
