Epulis Fissuratum

Epulis fissuratum refers to a mucosal hyperplasia caused due to chronic low-grade trauma as forced in by a denture flange. It is similar to acanthoma fissuratum of skin. Also popularly known by the name of Granuloma fissuratum, epulis fissuratum basically occurs in the mouth as an overgrowth of fibrous connective tissue. An oral pathologic condition, it is linked with the edges of a denture which does not fit properly. The term ‘epulis’ indicates any gingival tumor, but is often used in this connection. Other alternative names to epulis fissuratum are denture epulis, denture induced fibrous hyperplasia, and inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia.
