Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is not a true neoplasm but an exophytic benign growth of gingival tissues which has an origin either from periodontal ligament or mucoperiosteum. Clinically, it appears as a solitary nodule which may be sessile or pedunculated, color may vary from pale pink to deep red or purplish blue. The lesion varies widely in size, but usually is between 0.5 to 2 cm in diameter. The treatment is complete surgical excision which can be done either by a scalpel, electrocautery or lasers. This case report presents use of a diode laser aluminum gallium arsenide (denlase 810 nm) in contact mode for the treatment of PGCG. Use of lasers has shown various advantages over the conventional method and is a good treatment option.
