This article aims to describe purposeful reimplantation and inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia cases caused due to poor dental health and malpositioning of teeth. A 17-year-old male patient was referred to a dental specialty hospital for soft tissue growth in the lower anterior tooth region. Anamnesis and clinical examination revealed that tooth #31 was severely hypoplastic. A surgical procedure and purposeful reimplantation were carried out, and a histological examination revealed inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia. During the follow-up appointments, it was feasible to see progress and the patient's satisfaction. Despite the low occurrence of inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia, it is important to note that tooth positioning outside of its normal alignment in the arch can contribute to plaque and calculus accumulation, which can then become etiological factors for inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia. As a result, dentists must be attentive in order to establish a diagnosis and therapeutic therapy as well as monitor these instances.
