Chatterjee A, Ajmera N, Singh A - J Indian Soc Periodontol (2010)

Bottom Line: Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma is a reactive gingival overgrowth occurring frequently in anterior maxilla.It is a slow-growing benign tumor which may lead to pathologic migration and other periodontal problems, so it should be excised as soon as possible.Herein, we are reporting a similar case of peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma in the maxillary anterior region.

ABSTRACT
Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma is a reactive gingival overgrowth occurring frequently in anterior maxilla. It is a slow-growing benign tumor which may lead to pathologic migration and other periodontal problems, so it should be excised as soon as possible. The recurrence rate of peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma is reported to be 8% to 20%, so a close postoperative follow-up is required. Herein, we are reporting a similar case of peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma in the maxillary anterior region.

Figure 0004: Maxillary occlusal view showing bone loss in 11, 12 region

Mentions: Radiographic examination revealed moderate amount of bone loss in relation to 11 and 12 in both intraoral periapical and occlusal radiographs [Figures 3 and 4]. Routine hemogram was found to be normal. A provisional diagnosis of peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma was made. The differential diagnosis included irritational fibroma, pyogenic granuloma and peripheral giant cell granuloma.
