Abstract

The prevalence rate of amlodipine-induced gingival overgrowth was determined in patients taking amlodipine for three months. Gingival overgrowth was found in four cases among the 301 patients surveyed ; a prevalence rate of 1.3%. The clinical findings of amlodipine-induced gingival overgrowth were similar to those induced by other calcium channel blockers.
