Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 39-year old woman whose dentist referred her for consultation regarding an iatrogenic pigmented gingival lesion adjacent to tooth 12. No abnormalities or other pigmented areas were revealed in the intraoral examination. It was decided that the pigmented gingival lesion should be removed by surgical procedure involving autogenous gingival graft. The surgical procedure has been described and recommendations have been provided for avoiding such conditions.
