Palattella A., Marano G., Bollero P., Tomarelli F.


PDF  


Gingival overgrowth induced by calcium channel blockers can cause significant disfigurement and functional difficulty since it interferes with eating and speech, prevents effective plaque control, and disturbs occlusal relationships. It occurs more in young and male patients. The aim of this paper is to study the physiopathology of gingival overgrowth induced by calcium channel blockers and propose different choices of treatment.
