Definition

A form of hereditary gingival fibromatosis, a rare condition characterized by a slow, progressive overgrowth of the gingiva. The excess gingival tissue can cover part of or the entire crown, and can result in diastemas, teeth displacement, or retention of primary or impacted teeth. GINGF1 is usually transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, although sporadic cases are common.
