Abstract

Gingival hyperplasia is an aesthetically disfiguring condition causing psychological & masticatory disturbance of the oral cavity. There are wide varieties of causes of gingival enlargement ranging from most common causes like plaque accumulation, poor oral hygiene to serious systemic illnesses including blood dyscrasias, syndromes & side effects of several drugs. Here we report a case series of a neoplastic, a syndrome associated & a drug induced gingival enlargement along with a concise review on various etiologies, pathogeneses of gingival enlargement & an emphasis on the multidisciplinary approach required for the management of such distressing & functionally compromising gingival pathologies
