Abstract

Intra-oral fibrous type soft tissue overgrowth is common in oral cavity. It can be either benign or neoplastic lesions. Nonneoplastic type of reactive lesion seen in the oral cavity is caused by the chronic irritation. Focal fibrous hyperplasia is one such lesion which is seen in the line of occlusion. Focal fibrous hyperplasia is also known as irritational fibroma or traumatic fibroma. Proper oral hygiene, removal of etiologic factors and conservative excision will prevent the focal fibrous hyperplasia and its recurrence. Proper diagnosis, management and follow up should be done in these cases.

Keywords: Benign tumour; Focal fibrous hyperplasia; Irritation fibroma
