Click to enlargePeripheral Odontogenic Fibroma

Peripheral odontogenic fibromas include fibromatous and ossifying epulides. Epulis (plural=epulides) is a general term referring to a gingival mass of any type. This term has been adapted in veterinary nomenclature to refer to tumors arising from epithelial remnants within the periodontal ligament. The ossifying type is distinguished from the fibromatous type by containing varying amounts of bone, osteoid, dentinoid, or cementum-like tissue. Treatment of choice is removal of the mass and often the underlying tooth to prevent further spread.
