Treatment of Oral Fibromata Using the Nd:YAG Laser

Sergio Salina/Carlo Maiorana/Rachele Censi/Mario Beretta

An alternative surgical procedure for the excision of oral fibromata is described for the two most representative clinical cases. A Nd:YAG laser was used in more than 50 patients for the exeresis of fibromata of different sizes and consistencies. This procedure offers several advantages, most importantly minimal bleeding (absence of sutures) and no need for local infiltration anesthesia because there is almost no stimulation of pain. The fast healing process, the absence of postoperative complications, and the reduction of the recurrence rate make the procedure the first-choice solution for the surgical excision of fibromata and other benign tumors of the oral cavity.
