The mucocele is the accumulation of mucous from salivary glands and its ducts into subepithelial tissue. It is the most common, painless, and harmless oral lesions. Etiology could be trauma, lip habits or unknown. Diagnosis is made mainly on the basis of history and clinical examination. Along with conventional surgical treatment now, we have lasers also for excision of mucocele lesions. We reported a case series of mucocele treated with conventional treatment as well as laser.
