On intra oral examination there was a solitary swelling with ill-defined borders of size 5x4 centimeter was noted on the right buccal gingiva extending from mesial aspect of 14 to distal aspect of 17 (Figure 2).

Localized gingival defects are routinely corrected with autogenous grafts from either the palatal mucosa or buccal gingiva
. However, many patients may not desire a palatal graft due to the additional morbidity of the procedure, or due to a history of significant postsurgical bleeding from the palatal donor site.
The microscopic analysis was performed on the buccal gingiva
of the mandibular right first molar by a single calibrated blind examiner using a light transmission microscope BX51 (Olympus, Melville, NY, USA).
Peripheral manifestation include the canine area and buccal gingiva
around the canine area.
These findings are in contrast to those reported by Thusu et al.2 who reported lip as the commonest site of accidental injury (48%), followed by buccal gingiva
The palatal and buccal gingiva
of the upper anterior region was sutured into position.
