There are a number of etiologic factors relevant to gingival hyperplasia. Generally, instition of proper oral hygiene is sufficient for maintaining normal healthy gingiva. Once established gingival hyperplasia can best be treated by resection of all gingival excess, using flaps and gingivectomies. Monthly periodontal check-ups (scaling and polishing) are scheduled to control the gingival inflammation. Cooperation between the periodontist and the patient remains vital for successful management of gingival hyperplasia.
