The purpose of this study was to describe an alternative surgical approach to removing epulis while preserving and improving the mucogingival complex. After scaling and root planing, six patients underwent surgical treatment to remove the growths. A subepithelial connective tissue graft was interposed between the bone and epulis using a pedicle flap. The lesion was always preserved. The epulis disappeared after several months, with minor variations in healing time among patients. At 60-month follow-up visits, all patients exhibited good gingival health, with no recurrence.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe an alternative surgical approach to removing epulis while preserving and improving the mucogingival complex. After scaling and root planing, six patients underwent surgical treatment to remove the growths. A subepithelial connective tissue graft was interposed between the bone and epulis using a pedicle flap. The lesion was always preserved. The epulis disappeared after several months, with minor variations in healing time among patients. At 60-month follow-up visits, all patients exhibited good gingival health, with no recurrence.
