Özet

Congenital synechia of the gums is a rare malformation. The fusion may be partial or complete and may be associated with other facial dysmorphologic malformations. The synechia can be fibrous or bony and may develop between the upper and lower alveolar ridges. The authors report a newborn with partial, but broad and continuous, synechia of the gums and discuss its management during the first days of life.
