In this article, we discuss fissurattum case of epulis fissuratum in a year-old male patient. This allows the maintenance of an adequate sulcus depth important for achieving a correct peripheral seal for dental prosthesis retention and stability, preventing further recurrences [ 1314 ].

J Am Acad Dermatol. A comparison of carbon dioxide laser, liquid nitrogen cryosurgery, and scalpel wounds in healing.

Epulis fissuratum: consequence of ill-fitting prosthesis

Swed Dent J Suppl. Views Read Edit View history. A poorly fitted prosthesis can give rise to a plethora of problems like pain, discomfort in adalzh and speech and epulis fissuratum. It is considered as an overgrowth of intraoral tissues resulting from chronic irritation.

Abstract The aim of this report is to present a case showing the treatment of Epulis fissuratum in relation to an ill fitting denture, in a debilitated geriatric patient with a novel technique using liquid nitrogen cryosurgery.


Hence all these properties of cryosurgery make it a fissudatum suited technique in treating geriatric patients. The role of lasers in ambulatory oral maxillofacial surgery. Study of denture-induced fibrous hyperplasia cases diagnosed from to Intraoral examination revealed a polypoid fibrous mass, soft in consistency and smooth in texture.

Treatment includes immediate withdrawal of the ill-fitting prosthesis followed by topical application of antifungal agents and paste containing anaesthetics with local analgesics. Polypoid epulis fissuratum on the soft palate Click here to view. Risk factors in oral and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma: The liquid nitrogen for the gun was procured from Sri Venkateshwara University, Tirupathi Physics department which has a liquid nitrogen plant.

Clinical Significance The advantages of cryosurgery over the wpulis method makes it an important asset in the armamentarium of oral surgeon and has additional advantages of controlling pain and perhaps dealing with lesions in sites that would be difficult to treat by other means. The Treatment of epulis fissuratum of the oral cavity by CO 2 laser surgery. Swed Dent J Suppl ; Another advantage is that cryosurgery is a painless procedure because eoulis the immediate blockage of the nerve transmission in that area.

The mechanism behind it is that as the cryosurgery is applied ice crystals are formed intracellularly and progressive necrosis ensues. Withdrawal of the denture and topical application of analgesic gel over the affected site.
