A 16-year-old male presented with an asymptomatic nodular tumor in the oral cavity. Patient history revealed the spontaneous appearance of a mass, with exponential growth, 1 year prior to examination. Oral examination revealed a nodular tumor, soft and painless to palpation, similar in colour to the normal buccal mucosa. Mass location was alongside patient bite line (Figure 1A). Preoperative oral cancer examination using a three distinct colour wavelength fluorescence and reflectance technology system resulted negative. Histological analysis showed a nodular mass of fibrous tissue covered by stratified squamous epithelium (Figure 1B). The clinical diagnosis resulted in a focal fibrous hyperplasia. Surgical removal of oral fibroma was performed using a Er; Cr: YSGG, 2780 nm laser.
