CLAVERIA-CLARK, Rafael Alberto; RICARDO-REYES, Manuela  y  PENA-SISTO, Maritza. Fibrous gingival hiperplasia associated with upper central incisor retained. Rev. inf. cient. [online]. 2020, vol.99, n.2, pp.160-167.  Epub 03-Mar-2020. ISSN 1028-9933.

It was described a clinical case of a 12-year-old adolescent, treated at the Orthodontic Department of the Provincial Stomatological Clinic "Mártires del Moncada" in Santiago de Cuba, who was diagnosed with retention of the upper right central incisor more than two years ago and for which he received treatment with fixed appliances prior to tooth straightening and clinical-radiographic follow-up. During the orthodontic procedure, he was referred to the Department of Periodontics because he had a coral pink increase in volume in the area of that tooth, with a hard consistency and fibrous appearance, which made it impossible to definitively incorporate the tooth into its arch and occlusion plane. The corresponding complementary examinations were carried out, localized fibrous gingival hyperplasia was diagnosed and surgical treatment (gingivectomy) was performed, which allowed the successful completion of orthodontic treatment without any psychological or social implications for the patient. The rare occurrence of this type of injury associated with retention of upper central incisors motivated this case report.
