Abstract

Purpose

Oral hemangiomas are benign vascular proliferative tumors commonly on the tongue, lips, and gums. Several treatment modalities for hemangioma have been proposed, including laser photocoagulation.

Methods

This study aimed to describe the technique and the outcome of 2 cases of cavernous hemangiomas located on the tongue and oral mucosa treated with a 940-nm diode laser using the photocoagulation technique.

Results

Following treatment, patients demonstrated complete remission of the lesions. There were no visible scars and no evidence of recurrence after 6 months.

Conclusions

Photocoagulation with a 940-nm diode laser is an effective treatment for oral hemangioma and has been suggested to be an alternative to treat vascular tumors.
