Background: The oral cavity, which stretches from the lips to the oropharynx, is the initial portion of the digestive system. Materials and Method: Twenty-eight separate oral soft tissue surgeries were performed, fourteen with a 940 nm Diode laser with an output power of 1W and the other fourteen with a scalpel. Results: Although there was no difference in healing between the two groups, patients who were operated on with a laser felt more comfortable than those who were operated on with a conventional manner.
