Background

Patient is 31 years old, non smoker, healthy. The patient reports tumor-like formation between the two central incisors, which developed during her last pregnancy.

Treatment Procedure

The clinical presentation, along with the reported history point towards the “Pregnancy Epulis” diagnosis. Pregnancy Epulis is a gingival growth which develops during pregnancy. It usually resolves after parturition but can persist and warrant a surgical removal. The procedure was performed under local anesthesia and the resected tissue was sent for an analysis. This confirmed the initial diagnosis. The final clinical condition as presented is at 14 days after the removal of the tissue.
