  Gingival hyperplasia or gingival enlargement is a common type of gingival disease. It consists on a regional or generalized abnormal overgrowth of gingival tissues.

Always, this disease is a response of local irritation associated with many others contributory factors

  A detailed examination is required because pertinent management depends on precisely diagnosing and the determination of the enlargement origin.

  A case of generalized gingival hyperplasia related only to local factor in a 29-year-old female patient was reported, this case highlights the common etiologies of this disease and details the therapeutic approach.
