Chronic inflammatory hyperplasia is a reactive soft-tissue lesion. These lesions represent a reaction to some kind of irritation or low-grade injuries such as chewing, trapped food, calculus, fractured teeth, and iatrogenic factors, including overextended flanges of dentures and overhanging dental restorations. Treatment includes surgical excision of lesion and regular follow-up for the recurrence. Radicular cysts are the most common of all jaw cysts and comprise about 52%–68% of all the cysts affecting the human jaws. Radicular cysts arise from the epithelial residues in the periodontal ligament as a result of inflammation. They generally result due to pulpal infection following dental caries. Treatment comprises enucleation of cyst and endodontic treatment of tooth. These are two entities were irrelevant, and occurrence of these two entities in a single individual was an averment of patients' negligence and lack of oral hygiene awareness among patients of lower social economy. A complete case report accompanied with emphasis on hygiene awareness was depicted in this present case report.
