Nonsurgical treatment of recurrent gingival pyogenic granuloma: A case report
Frumkin, Nathalie / Nashef, Rizan / Shapira, Lior / Wilensky, Asaf
Gingival pyogenic granuloma is a relatively common benign form of mucocutaneous lesion. Although surgical excision is considered to be the standard care, several reports have demonstrated a high recurrence rate of the lesion. In this case report a nonsurgical protocol to treat recurring gingival pyogenic granuloma and prevent further recurrence is suggested. The protocol includes strict oral hygiene instructions, scaling, root planing, and maintenance treatment. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of conservative nonsurgical management of recurrent gingival pyogenic granuloma lesions.
