Aim: Describe a clinical case of a voluminous asymptomatic fibromatosis lesion present on the cheek mucosa and evaluate the healing of the site after removal of the lesion with use of the laser diode. Metho: It was decided to use laser diodes to affect the mucous membrane and remove the lesion without the use of local anesthetic infiltration. The protocol used includes a 300-micron fiber and the emission of continuous light of 1.5 Watt with a range of wave of 940 nm. Results: The proven benefits of using laser diodes for minor surgery are: 1.drastic reduction of intraoperative bleeding and in the hours after the surgery 2.will restrict the swelling 3.better and faster healing with no scarring and better cosmetic result 4.does not require sutures 5.reducing the operating time thanks to no need for anesthetic infiltration most cases totally absent or less post-operative pain on the surgical site. Conclusions: The laser diodes give a significant contribution to improving the surgical treatment of tumors of the oral cavity infact during the surgery reduce bleeding and surgical time, while in the process of healing by reduce swelling and post-operative pain and better results appearance without scarring.
