ABSTRACT

Evolution of technology has taken dentistry leaps and bounds, and the introduction of lasers has indeed been a boon to pediatric dentists. Lasers have made pediatric patient‟s dental treatment more comfortable and less time consuming and have proven to take the relationship between the parents, kids and the dentist a notch higher. This report illustrates the use of a diode laser (940nm) for the excision of a gingival polyp in an 11-year-old patient. The advantages of the laser were evident with the omission of any infiltration as the procedure was performed with a simple topical anesthesia providing a bloodless field with less post operative discomfort. The patient did not report of any pain and there was no necessity of any antibiotics or analgesics post the procedure. Absence of bleeding makes it easy to restore the teeth in the same appointment. Minimal anesthesia and better patient compliance present a strong statement for lasers to be incorporated into modern dental practice as a viable substitute to the traditional scalpel surgery.

Keywords: Gingival Polyp, Gingival Epulis, Scalpel, Electrocautery, Lasers, Diode.
