Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) presents as a tumor-like growth of the soft tissue and is often associated with sharp teeth, rough restoration, and ill-fitting denture. POF is fibro-osseous in origin and is commonly found in the maxillary region. It is a slow-growing benign tumor and usually asymptomatic. However, it may induce facial asymmetry. A 29-year-old male patient who reported to the Department of Periodontology with the chief complaint of slow-growing painless mass over the anterior palatal region underwent surgical excision of the mass using electrocautery. Fifteen days follow-up showed uneventful and satisfactory healing of the excised region.
