Dr. Puja Sarkar*, Dr. Suchisuvra Bagchi and Dr. Prasanta Bandyopadhyay

ABSTRACT

Several drugs have been claimed to be associated with gingival overgrowth as an adverse effect of their usage. Such drugs include calcium channel blockers (CCB), phenytoin and cyclosporine etc. Among the CCBs, Amlodipine has been used with increasing frequency over the past few years and has been reported to cause gingival overgrowth. The exact reason for such enlargement has not yet been conclusively determined, but several risk factors have been proposed of such enlargement. Here we present a series of cases of Amlodipine induced gingival enlargements with their treatment including surgical management.

Keywords: Drug induced gingival overgrowth, Calcium channel blockers (CCB), Amlodipine, Gingivectomy.
