Abstract – IDIOPATHIC GINGIVAL FIBROMATOSIS : A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT
Idiopathic gingival fibromatosis is a proliferative fibrous lesion of the gingival tissue that causes esthetic and functional problems. It is a gradually progressive benign enlargement that affects the marginal gingiva, attached gingiva and interdental papilla.  It may be associated with other diseases/conditions characterizing a syndrome but this case report describes a case of nonsyndromic generalized idiopathic gingival fibromatosis in a 30 year-old female patient who presented with generalized gingival enlargement. Non-surgical periodontal therapy was performed which yielded functionally as well as esthetically satisfying results. The patient was regularly monitored clinically for improvement in his periodontal condition as well as for any recurrence of gingival overgrowth.

Keywords: Gingival enlargement, Idiopathic gingival fibromatosis, non-surgical periodontal therapy.
