Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a common non-neoplastic growth that can lead to various complications if left untreated. Accurate diagnosis and surgical removal are crucial to avoid adverse outcomes. This article presents a case of a 47-year-old woman with a pyogenic granuloma in the interdental space between her maxillary right molars. The lesion was successfully treated using a less invasive conventional excision method, with no recurrence to date. Histopathologic evaluation confirmed the diagnosis of pyogenic granuloma. This case report highlights the importance of timely and appropriate management of pyogenic granuloma for optimal clinical outcomes..
