Abstract


Peripheral ossifying fibroma is a solitary, benign, reactive gingival overgrowth frequently arising from the interdental papilla. It is commonly seen in second decade in females. It is usually painless and slow growing, commonly seen in the anterior aspects of the jaws. The etiopathogenesis of the peripheral ossifying fibroma is not clearly established and the treatment of the lesion includes complete surgical removal along with the removal of causative factors to prevent recurrence. We report a case of peripheral ossifying fibroma in a young male patient.
