Mucocele is a common lesion of the oral mucosa that results from an alteration of minor salivary glands due to a mucus accumulation. Mucocele involves mucin accumulation causing limited swelling. Two histological types exist-extravasation and retention. Mucoceles can appear at any site of the oral mucosa where minor salivary glands are present. Mostly seen on lower lip, followed by floor of the mouth and buccal mucosa being the next frequent site. This paper presents a case report of mucocele using CO 2 laser.
