Abstract

Cryosurgery is an effective, painless method for the removal of inflammatory papillary hyperplasia. It requires no local anesthetic, and there is no offensive odor or postoperative or operative bleeding. The method is attended by little postoperative discomfort. Total healing occurs from 3 to 5 weeks postoperatively. The palatal mucosa has a normal appearance and is soft and nontender. A method employing a Freon-cooled probe has been used effectively on twelve patients with inflammatory papillary hyperplasia.
