Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a benign lesion similar to an ossifying fibroma, although more aggressive and of earlier onset. Clinically, it is a slowly growing asymptomatic swelling causing facial asymmetry, but the tumor can progress to a considerable size. Nonaggressive tumors can be managed conservatively, but aggressive lesions may require salvage procedures to prevent recurrence. We present a case of 3-year-old boy with slow growing, firm, nontender swelling of left lower jaw region. The nodular mass obliterated the buccal vestibular region and led to difficulty in mastication and speech. The tumor was treated by en bloc excision through intraoral mandibular vestibular approach.
