Gingival foreign body granuloma in conjunction with the use of a dental water jet: A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Foreign body gingivitis has been described as an inflammatory reaction of marginal or attached gingival tissues due to foreign material in the connective tissue. This article presents the case of a 58-year-old woman with the chief complaint of periodic discomfort in her maxillary "gums" and redness in the facial gingival tissues of the maxillary anterior segment. A biopsy showed a granulomatous reaction in both the red and neutral areas. The patient revealed that she had been using a water jet device on a high pressure setting. She was advised to discontinue the water jet use, after which the gingival redness and inflammation began to subside, and appeared normal at 3- and 6-month follow-up visits.
