Pyogenic granuloma is thought to be an extreme tissue response to trauma or local irritation. Hormonal changes also trigger the formation of the lesion. Clinically, this lesion is usually found as single nodules or vesicular papules with smooth or lobular surfaces. They can be seen from a few millimeters to a few centimeters at any size. It is known that pyogenic granuloma occurs more frequently in the teeth (75% of all cases). In this article, we presented a laser-assisted surgical treatment of a gingival pyogenic granuloma consisting of the right molar region of the mandible in a 22-year-old pregnant woman.
