This patient was referred from her general dentist for treatment of a persistent red mass. She presented at the initial exam with a red mass on the gingiva in the maxillary anterior quadrant. The patient was asymptomatic and the red lesion had been present for approximately 6 months. After a dental exam was completed and all risk factors were ruled out. A conservative excision with a rotary device combined with a deep cleaning to remove all bacterial plaque was completed as a first treatment option. No complications were noted at the time of surgical treatment, and no sutures were required. Resolution of the gum infection was noted in approximately 6 weeks. The patient was pleased with the dental surgery outcome, and was amazed how painless the surgery was. As a dental specialist in periodontics, I treat many types of gum infection.
