Can gum enlargement recur?

Gingival hyperplasia may recur. If gingivitis occurs due to poor oral hygiene, pregnancy, etc., it may lead to inflammatory gingival hyperplasia, or gingival tumor, which mostly occurs in the gingival papilla area. It may recur if, after conservative treatment or surgical removal, the patient still does not pay attention to oral hygiene and does not follow the standard brushing and regular cleaning.
In addition, gingival fibromatosis associated with genetic factors is also prone to recurrence after surgical removal, but its recurrence can be avoided or delayed if the patient maintains good oral hygiene after surgery.
