Can laser surgery get rid of black dot on gum?

Q: Can laser surgery on my gums get rid of a black dot in my upper gum? My dentist said that is was a “mole”, but I really want an answer from an expert.

A: The first thing to get is an accurate diagnosis of what the black dot is. Assuming that it is a lesion that doesn’t need to be biopsied, then a ND/YAG 1064 can be used to remove pigmented lesions in the mouth and elsewhere.
