Cemento-ossifying fibroma, also known as ossifying fibroma or cementifying fibroma, is classified under the mesenchymal odontogenic tumor group, whereas the juvenile types which are not considered odontogenic are classified under fibro- and chondro-osseous lesions in the last classification.
Various nomenclature are given for the POF by different authors, such as peripheral cementifying fibroma, ossifying fibro-epithelial polyp, peripheral fibroma with cementogenesis, peripheral fibroma with osteogenesis, peripheral fibroma with calcification, calcifying fibroblastic granuloma and calcifying or ossifying fibrous epulis.
