Description

The definition, etiology, clinical manifestations, prevalence and differential diagnosis of two types of mucocele are covered. Both surgical and non-surgical treatment modalities are outlined. A case study illustrates the CO2 laser excision of a mucocele in a pediatric patient, emphasizing highly efficient soft-tissue vaporization, hemostasis and healing with minimized damage to surrounding tissues, reduced edema and risk of complications.
