    Author(s): Tahrir N Aldelaimi

    Background: Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a well-known oral benign growth. The most frequent intra-oral site is marginal gingiva. It is often arises in the second decade of life, mostly bleeds on simple probing and that has a strong tendency to recur after simple excision. The aim of study: to assess the therapeutic benefits of diode laser (810-980 nm) in treatment of oral pyogenic granuloma. Materials and Method: A total of 14 patients (7 males, 7 females) were enrolled in this study and had their pyogenic granuloma laser removed. All of the patients underwent the identical surgical procedure, which was performed under local anesthetic (cartridge containing 1 percent lidocaine with epinephrine 1:100.000). To achieve coagulation and prevent bleeding, the lesions were meticulously sliced by moving the laser fiber tip in a sweeping manner on the surgical site. The wounds were not sutured t.. Read More»
