Gingival enlargement is a condition with an increase in the size of the gingiva and can be caused by inflammation, systemic disease, and medications. Genetic factors and allergic components in dentifrices, chewing gums, etc., also lead to gingival enlargement. Aggressive periodontitis is a periodontal disease with rapid destruction of the periodontium. The pace and severity of destruction make the disease difficult to manage. If it is complicated with fibrous hyperplasia and loss of dentition, it needs additional treatment. Here, in our case report, we are going to discuss the periodontal management and prosthetic rehabilitation of patient having generalized aggressive periodontitis with gingival hyperplasia.
