Fibromatosis gingivae



•When tooth eruption is impeded, surgical removal of the excessive tissue and exposure of the teeth are indicated.

•The cosmetic appearance may also require surgical excision.

•The lesion sometimes recurs. It has been reported that tooth extraction alone will cause the tissues to shrink almost to normal and that recurrences can be prevented by this.
