ABSTRACT:After gingivitis and periodontitis, gingival overgrowth is one of most frequently encountered lesion of oral cavity which arises as a result of irritants such as trauma, microorganisms, plaque etc. There are certain groups of reactive hyperplasias, which develop in response to a chronic, recurring tissue injury that stimulates an exuberant or excessive tissue repair response. Of these include, Pyogenic granuloma is the most common entity responsible for causing soft tissue enlargement followed by Giant Cell Central Granuloma and Peripheral ossifying fibroma. There are many treatment modalities for gingival lesions such as Scalpel technique, Laser, Electrocautery etc. In this article we have discussed about two case reports of Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma along with its clinical, histopathological features and treatment using electrocautery. Electrocautery has been used in dentistry for many purposes such as for, Gingivectomy, pulpotomy, frenectomy, operculectomy, hemostasis etc. The main advantage of the electrocautery is its coagulative effect that provides bloodless area and clear view of the operative field. Hence it can be used as an alternative to conventional surgery.
