The concept of using dental lasers for the treatment of periodontal disease elicits very strong reactions from all sides of spectrum. The diode Laser is powerful tool for treatment of various types of soft tissue lesion. Laser has profound effect on the patient acceptability taking the functional and aesthetic factor into consideration. Very few cases have been reported in literature regarding treatment of mucosal growth by soft tissue lasers. I present a case of pyogenic granuloma in a patient treated with a diode laser, without the use of anesthesia, sutures, anti ­inflammatory drugs, or analgesics. Treatment planning is totally depending upon the correct diagnosis of lesion.
