A pulp polyp, also called as Chronic hyperplastic pulpitis, is found in an open carious lesion, fractured tooth or when a dental restoration is missing. Due to lack of intrapulpal pressure in an open lesion pulp necrosis does not take place as would have occurred in a closed caries case. Also a good vascular and immune supply is necessary. It is a productive pulpal inflammation where the development of granulation tissue is seen.
The condition is more commonly seen in children and young adults.it is characterised by the overgrowth of the tissue outside the boundary of pulp chamber
