In our case we observed a good bleeding control in mandibular epulis and maxillary epulis. The mechanism behind it is that as the cryosurgery is applied ice crystals are formed intracellularly and progressive necrosis ensues. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here.

Epulis fissuratum

This is an important advantage of CO2 laser treatment report by many authors. According to the American Society of Rpulis classification [ 4 ], he was classified as ASA III that is patient with severe systemic disease that limits activity, due to the presence of more than two systemic diseases.


During the procedure, nil haemorrhage was achieved and the postoperative healing was satisfactory. Show more Show less.

Case Report: Epulis fissuratum: consequence of ill-fitting prosthesis

It is widely used in removing epidermal warts, molluscum contagiosum, hemangiomas, treating chromomycosis [ 16 — 18 ] and also in excision of skin malignancies [ 19 ]. On history and clinical examination, a provisional epulus of denture-induced hyperplasia was made.

It not only produces pain and discomfort but negatively affects the mastication, aesthetics and overall well-being of the patient. A clinical study of a Turkish population group. It was observed that the cryosurgery technique maintained a clear surgical field with nil haemorrhage accounting to its advantage.

Trauma and irritation are the two main aetiological factors responsible for occurrence of epulis. One of the main advantages over convencional surgeries is an excellent haemostasis. Epulis fissuratum is the reactive tissue response to sustained mechanical pressure generated by ill-fitting prosthesis.

Continuing fisuratum will be considered as acceptance of this use. Med Las Appl, 20pp. Squamous cell papilloma Keratoacanthoma Malignant: Some of the lasers used in dentistry for this purpose is CO 2 laser, Er: Photomed Laser Surg, 28pp.


Anticoagulant intake is another challenge that pulls the cuffs of the dentist, which he can be readily overcome.
