There are several treatment options for hyperplastic gingival lesions. Among these, diode lasers have the advantages of less bleeding, which is an important characteristic in mucosal lesions, a shorter procedure time, better healing, and less complications. We present the case of a 48-year-old male patient with a history of cerebral palsy and a presumptive diagnosis of traumatic fibroma. The entire lesion was removed in one session with no complications. No recurrence was observed at 3 months follow up. This procedure can be considered a good modality especially for physically challenged patients.
