Handling Of A Mucocele That Is Bitten And Feels Tight?
Doctor, I have a mucocele in the lower right aunt. In the afternoon the afternoon had begun to shrink, but today it had become bigger and was even bitten. Mukokel feels like breaking and tightening. What should I do doctor? Thanks.
Hello Ms. Beautiful Pambudi Arumsari thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
As you might have understood, that mucocel is a blockage in the salivary ducts either on the lips or in the mouth, so it looks like there is a collection of fluids. Some of the causes are:
punctured area of the oral cavity
the existence of friction contact with the teeth in a long time
Unmanaged tooth and mouth flanks
Basically mucocel can disappear on its own as long as there is no trauma to the mucocel again such as rubbing with teeth or being bitten. However, if what happens to you is the bite of the mucocel, then it usually will worsen the mucocel and make it more inflamed and enlarged. If it's like this then mucocel should be handled properly by a doctor or medical officer who is an expert in his field.
All you need to understand is first not to solve the mucocel itself which if done will cause an infection that is very likely to occur. Second, you should avoid mucocel from being bitten and traumatized again. Third, always take care of your dental and oral health and henceforth immediately consult a doctor or dentist so that proper treatment is immediately carried out on your mucocel. The possibility that will be done is like corticosteroids, cryoteraphy, and laser. However, you do not worry, because of course this treatment must be adjusted to your conditions first. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you.
