Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a tumor-like nonneoplastic hyperplastic lesion of oral cavity occurring in response to various stimuli, of which chronic irritation and hormones influence pathogenesis predominantly. Lesion has high vascularity with numerous capillaries with severe bleeding tendency even with slight touch. Surgical excision of the tissue is the treatment of choice for which lasers would be the preferred choice owing to its lesser intraoperative bleeding, superior coagulation ability, wound sterilization, minimal pain, invasiveness, and lack of need for suturing or packing with better postoperative healing. This case report is about a teenage girl with severe PG managed using diode laser.
