Gingival enlargement is one of the common features of gingival disease which can be seen in the form of fibrous and/or, inflammatory overgrowth or, combination of both. Gingival enlargement is most commonly seen due to the presence of local factors such as plaque and calculus. These local factors result in the inflammatory hyperplasia of marginal gingiva and interdental papilla and may be localized or, generalized. Such type of enlargements may lead to difficulty in mastication, altered speech and unesthetic appearance which may cause psychological problems. The present case report reveals the successful management of a case with gingival enlargement which was treated with Kirkland flap for the upper anterior and right posterior regions while modified Widman flap procedure that was performed for lower anterior region to excise the tissue along with the pocket lining.
