peripheral odontogenic fibroma
a rare soft tissue lesion of fibrous connective tissue associated with the gingival margin or interdental papilla. The lesion is a sessile mass covered by normal-looking mucosa. It may also contain dysplastic dentin, cementum-like calcifications, and bony trabeculae. This lesion differs from peripheral ossifying fibroma. Compare with central odontogenic fibroma.
