Introduction: Drug-induced gingival overgrowth (DIGO) remains a significant problem for the dental clinicians and the periodontologists. [...] Key Method Patient was a known hypertensive and was on medication from past two years. Planned surgical intervention along with full mouth rehabilitation was the chosen treatment strategy. clinical follow-up period lasted for one and a half years. conclusion: With the consent of physician for substitution of the drug along with stringent maintenance of oral hygiene…Expand
Amlodipine induced gingival enlargement managed by a combined approach
Gingival overgrowth represents an over-exuberant response to a variety of local and systemic conditions. Certain anticonvulsants, immuno-suppressive drugs and a number of calcium channel blockersExpand
Amlodipine Induced Gingival Overgrowth, Unusual Defect and The Impact of Oral Environment: A Case Report
TLDR
Improvement of oral hygiene, associated to periodontal non-surgical treatment alone, can afford clinical satisfaction and changing the patient’s medication should be the last solution when local measures fail. Expand
Drug-induced gingival overgrowth: A critical insight into case reports from over two decades
TLDR
The purpose of the present article is to review case reports and case series published in the last two decades and to assimilate and compile the information for clinical applications such as diagnosis and therapeutic management of DIGO. Expand
Combined Inflammatory and Drug Induced Gingival Overgrowth in A Patient with Cardiovascular Disease. A Case Report
TLDR
The management of gingival overgrowth in a hypertensive patient taking amlodipine is described, which included phase 1 therapy, substitution of the drug, surgical excision and maintenance and supportive therapy. Expand
Amlodipine induced Gingival Overgrowth
TLDR
The amlodipine induced gingival enlargement and its treatment in a 60 years old hypertensive female patient is reported. Expand
Is periodontal health a predictor of drug-induced gingival overgrowth? A cross-sectional study
TLDR
The results of this study indicated a definite association between periodontal health and development and severity of amlodipine-induced gingival overgrowth in hypertensive patients receiving amlODipine. Expand
SHORT TERM, LOW DOSE AMILODIPINE INDUCED SEVERE DRUG INDUCED GINGIVAL ENLARGEMENT
This case report describes a case of amlodipine periodontitis case. The uniqueness in this case is that the patient exhibited severe enlargement in spite of using the drug at lower dosage withinExpand
Prevalence and Risk Factors of Drug-induced Gingival Overgrowth in Hypertensive Patients
TLDR
It is found that DIGO is prevalent among hypertensive patients on CCB and its occurrence is coexists with gingivitis, therefore, periodontal assessment is recommended among these patients for early detection and management of drug-induced gingival overgrowth. Expand
International Journal of Medical and Biomedical Studies (IJMBS)
Gingival enlargement, [sometimes abbreviated to GO (gingival overgrowth)] is an increase in the size of the gingiva. It is a common feature of gingival disease. Gingival enlargement is a well knownExpand
Amlodipine induced gingival hyperplasia: a case report
TLDR
The present case is interesting as it occurred with a low dose of amlodipine (5 mg) and appeared on administration for 5 months and a brief review on the management of hyperplasia without surgical interventions is reviewed. Expand

There was a significant relationship between gingival inflammation resulting from dental plaque and drug dosage, and hyperplasia in dental patients who received amlodipine. Expand
Conservative management of amlodipine influenced gingival enlargement
TLDR
The importance of conservative approach (scaling and root planning along with drug replacement) in the management of a case of amlodipine influenced gingival enlargement was discussed, and the need for extensive surgery was decreased. Expand

TLDR
This case indicated that manidipine may act as a potent inducer of severe GO, and that conventional periodontal treatments without a major change of the causative drugs can yield satisfactory clinical responses. Expand
Amlodipine-induced gingival overgrowth.
TLDR
In all 3 patients, there was sequestration of amlodipine in their crevicular fluid, and the significance of this finding in relation to the pathogenesis of this unwanted effect remains to be elucidated. Expand

TLDR
The identification of risk factors associated with both the prevalence and severity of drug-induced gingival overgrowth is important for all parties involved with this unwanted effect. Expand
The management of drug-induced gingival overgrowth.
TLDR
Non-surgical techniques can limit the occurrence of this unwanted affect, reduce the extent of plaque-induced gingival inflammation and reduce the rate of recurrence of DIGO. Expand

Expand
Drug-induced gingival overgrowth.
TLDR
Until a more effective approach can be developed from future research results, treatment should continue to emphasize plaque control, professional debridement, and resective gingival procedures to improve function, esthetics, and access for home care. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that nifedipine therapy results in significant gingival changes, an effect which may be mediated by the drug's action on calcium transport. Expand
