Peripheral osteomas of the mandible are uncommon bony tumours. Of those that have been described, the location is normally posterior to the premolars on the lingual surface of the mandible or in the condylar area. This article presents a case of an atypical presentation of an osteoma arising from the anterior lingual alveolar cortical plate of the mandible.
