Fibrotic lesions of the jaws have been increasingly encountered in clinical dental practice. This term describes a process involving impaired bone formation. This abnormality can be found in children, but since it develops painlessly it is usually detected in adults, mostly in women. As the X-ray shows that fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws are often located near and around root apices, some of them are often confused with endodontic pathologies. Fibrotic dysplasia is diagnosed on the basis of clinical and radiological examination. The dental therapist must be aware of the clinical manifestations of these types of lesions and be competent enough to make a correct diagnosis and avoid the improper management of patients, which may harm their health.
