Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is a reactive gingival growth, which accounts for 9.6% of gingival lesions. It exhibits a peak incidence between the second and third decades of life with a female predilection. Treatment includes surgical excision down to the periosteum and periodontal ligament with thorough root planning. Another option available in place of conventional surgical excision is the excision using lasers. Here is a case of POF affecting anterior maxillary gingiva in 19-year-old male patient successfully managed using an 810-nm diode laser.
