Case Summary and Diagnostic Information
This is a 61-year-old white male seen at a periodontology clinic in October 2008 for an extraction and implant placement on tooth #13. Upon examination, this small (about 3mm), unilateral, exophytic, sessile and smooth-surfaced lesion was noted on the lingual gingiva of tooth #28 (Figure 1). It was of unknown duration and was asymptomatic. Radiographic findings were within normal limits with no evidence of bony involvement. The patient was unaware of its presence.
