Cherubism is a disorder characterized by abnormal bone tissue in the lower part of the face. The lower jaw and upper jaw become enlarged as the bone is replaced with painless cyst like growths. These growths give the cheeks a swollen, rounded appearance that may interfere with normal tooth development.
