Herbal Remedies To Treat Mucoceles Without Surgery?
good night, I want to ask if there are herbal medicines to treat retention cysts? apart from going through surgery?
Thank you for the question.
Are you referring to retention cysts as cysts in the oral cavity? or is it somewhere else.
In general, retention cysts or mucoceles are cysts that are in the oral cavity. Mucocel is a benign, fluid-filled tumor found in the mouth. Mucocel are usually found on the lower inner lip, tongue, palate, inner cheeks, and floor of the mouth. Mukocel is not a dangerous condition. The cause is an injury to the salivary glands which results in the salivary glands unable to drain normally. The triggers are:
poked while brushing your teeth
bitten while chewing food
banging of the mouth or cheek
The only treatment action is to perform surgery to remove the tumor. So far no herbal treatment has been found to shrink or eliminate the mucocele. In children the mucocele can heal on its own. Another treatment technique is to inject corticosteroids before surgery or surgery using laser techniques.
The suggestions that I can give to prevent recurrent mucoceles are by:
maintain oral hygiene by brushing your teeth 2 times a day after eating and before going to bed
avoid the habit of biting the lips or cheeks
drink lots of water
gargle with warm salt water 3-4 times a day
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
