Abstract: The present case report describes a 12-year-old female patient with an enlarging, painless soft mass in the maxillary anterior region. Intraoral examination revealed satisfactory occlusion with no occlusal interferences and generalized spacing in between the maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth. Radiological examination did not reveal any significant lesion or caries. The patient underwent oral prophylaxis before the surgical procedure. Local anesthesia was given, and an incision was made with a scalpel blade. External bevel gingivectomy was performed, and the swelling was excised along with the periodontal ligament. The mass was sent for histopathological analysis. The periodontal ligament was removed with Gracey curette no 1, 2, haemostasis was achieved, and antibiotics were prescribed. The mass was diagnosed as a pyogenic granuloma based on histopathological analysis. The patient was followed up for six months, and no recurrence was observed. In conclusion, fibro-epithelial polyp is a relatively common benign oral lesion that can present as an enlarging soft tissue mass. Early diagnosis and management are crucial to prevent complications and recurrence. Surgical excision with periodontal ligament removal is an effective treatment option for fibro-epithelial polyp. Regular follow-up is essential to monitor for recurrence.
