Oral health care in pregnancy is a critical issue which needs to be addressed by the patient, gynecologist and dentist. There are hormonal changes which occur during the pregnancy and leads to changes in oral flora making the oral cavity more susceptible to oral infections and inflammation. Timely referral by the gynecologist to the dentist can minimize the oral health issues related to pregnancy. Patient education and oral prophylaxis are beneficial for both the patient and fetal care. This case report highlights pregnancy tumor in the second trimester of pregnancy which was excised after parturition due to its persistence.
