Palatal Hyperplasia due to Denture Irritation

# Treatment of choice for palatal hyperplasia occurring due to denture irritation is:
a) Discontinuation of dentures
b) Radicular excision
c) Supraperiosteal excision
d) No treatment necessary

The correct answer is C. Supraperiosteal excision.

Early treatment for papillary hyperplasia includes prosthesis adjustment, tissue conditioning and proper oral hygiene. Advanced treatment consists of supraperiosteal excision. There is no need to excise full thickness of palatal tissue. The techniques include removal of inflamed mucosa with electrosurgery loops, laser ablation, sharp dissection, dermabrasion brushes, and cryotherapy.
