Clinical examination revealed a non-tender, bright-red pedunculated mass which arose from the buccal interdental papilla between teeth #19 and #20. (Figure 1) The mass tended to bleed easily upon manipulation. Generalized marginal gingivitis was seen throughout the mouth.
A bitewing radiograph revealed slight bone loss at the crest of the alveolar bone between #19 and #20. (Figure 2) However, no obvious intrabony lesion was observed.
