Chief Complaints

A girl aged 8.5 years was brought by her mother with complaints of soft swelling like structures in the gums around the right lower first premolar and in between the left lower first premolar and left lower second premolar since for the last two months

Personal History

She was shy in nature. When I asked her a question she always smiled .She was the youngest of the 4 siblings. When the cysts were small, she never told her mother because it was no problem for her. As the size of the cysts increased, she had the problem of feeling uneasy and irritated whenever food particles touched the cysts
