Eruption cyst or eruption hematoma is a soft tissue cyst of odontogenic origin that occurs in mucosa, which forms shortly before the eruption of the primary or permanent tooth. It is usually found in children. In some cases, it has been seen that it disappears on its own. If there are complications like pain, bleeding or infection, surgical exposure and drainage are necessary. This case is associated with erupting permanent tooth, and its surgical crown exposure has been done by using a diode laser.
