Induced gingival overgrowth with medication is a side effect of systemic therapy with anticonvulsants, immunosuppressants, and calcium channel blockers. It can emerge in patients in close relation to a number of general variables such as age, genetic predisposition, and length of medication or local factors such as preexisting gingival inflammation. Dentists and general practitioners should be trained to make prompt diagnoses by identifying oral symptoms that indicate a systemic effect of various medications.
