This case report addresses the diagnosis and treatment of a case of idiopathic gingival enlargement in a 13-year-old female. The patient presented with generalized diffuse gingival enlargement involving the maxillary and mandibular arches extending on buccal and lingual/palatal surfaces and covering incisal / occlusal third of the tooth resulting in difficulty in speech and mastication since last three years.

Figure 1: Pre-operative

Mentions: Extra-oral examination revealed that the patient has incompetent everted lips and a convex profile. An intraoral examination revealed generalized, diffused, nodular enlargement of the gingiva involving the upper and lower arches, which were pink in color, and had a firm and fibrous consistency [Figure 1]. The teeth were barely visible as the enlarged gingiva covered till the incisal/occlusal third of the teeth. Grade I mobility was seen in lower incisors.
