Solitary gingival growths, the most common finding in the oral mucosa, are usually due to reactive response to local irritation, and one such reactive lesion is peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF). This article is emphasized on a case report of POF in a 28-year-old female in the maxillary premolar region. Clinical presentation, radiographic details, histopathologic features, differential diagnosis, and treatment with regular follow-up are made.
