Peripheral reactive lesions of gingiva are common lesions of the oral cavity that dentists come across in daily life. Among these are focal fibrous hyperplasia, pyogenic granuloma, peripheral giant cell granuloma, and peripheral ossifying fibroma. Localized irritation fibroma is a gingival growth, usually arising from interdental papilla due to the presence of some chronic irritation due to dental calculus or other iatrogenic factors. This article reports a case of a 39-year-old male with a recurrent irritation fibroma in the maxillary anterior gingiva treated by excision. The presence of growth in the esthetic maxillary anterior segment and the possibility of unesthetic defect due to excision of the growth have been discussed. The importance of treating the chronic infectious irritational factor and regular follow-up to prevent long-term recurrence of the growth has been discussed.
