The fibroma is the most frequent disease found in intraoral area followed by pyogenic granuloma, epulis fissuratum, palatal papillomatosis, and epulis granulomatosum. The inflammatory hyperplasia by mechnical irritation is easily different from other disease, but this shows similar to several benign and malignant tumors required differential diagnosis.

The inflammatory hyperplasia is differently treated by each clinical features.: only removal of cause or, and excisional biopsy is/are required. This is the cases report of reactive hyperplasia of intraoral soft tissue by mechanical irritation that suggests various treatments of each cases.
