Mucoceles is the most common benign minor salivary gland lesion commonly affecting children and adolescents, being more prevalent on lower labial mucosa with periodic rupture history and local trauma. A complete excision is recommended for mucoceles, including associated salivary gland tissue and marginal glands. Conventional surgical intervention as well as laser excision is indicated. This case report describes lower lip mucoceles excision with an Nd: YAG laser in a 6-year-old girl, with no recurrence after 12 years. When properly used, Nd: YAG laser can play a beneficial role to both clinicians and patients in achieving high quality results, as it provides good hemostasis, reduced postoperative swelling, bacterial reduction at the surgical site, lesser need for suturing, faster healing, and less postoperative pain. The success of this procedure was reflected due to a lack of recurrent lesion with a comprehensive follow up period of 12 years.
