Dental Emergency

added on: June 16, 2012

This patient was referred from her General Dentist for a dental emergency exam.  She presented with a non-symptomatic gingival growth located on her anterior gingiva.  After determining that the growth was most likely benign, it conservatively excised and the growth did not reoccur.  The patient was extremely pleased with the outcome of the conservative treatment for her dental emergency and no pain after the treatment.  Differential diagnosis includes Pyogenic Granuloma, Peripheral Giant Cell Granuloma, and Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma.  These overgrowths (oral diseases) are due to irritation, physical trauma, or hormonal factors.  They are often found on the skin and nasal septum, and have been identified other places than the head, such as the thigh.  As a Periodontist, I’m fortunate to be able to treat many types of dental emergencies.
