Abstract

Oral pyogenic granulomas, a common clinical condition, occurring in all age groups, and is seen frequently in females around the second decade of their life. It occurs as a sessile or pedunculated growth varies in color from red to purple. It is frequently seen on the marginal gingiva especially in the maxillary arch. Anterior teeth are more frequently affected then posteriors. They are commonly seen on the facial aspect and usually do not show radiologic findings. The treatment is surgical excision which was usually done with scalpel blade. However, with recent technological advances, excision can be done using electrosurgery and diode lasers. In the present case report, excision of pyogenic granuloma is done using scalpel, electrosurgery and diode laser.
