The Cause Of The Lower Right Gum There Is A Small Lump But Not Painful?
Good afternoon want to ask, in the lower jaw (gum) on the right side there is a small lump when pressed white, but it does not hurt. Is dangerous thanks
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. From the characteristics you mentioned, it's likely that the condition you are experiencing is mucocele. Mucocele or mucous cyst is a sac filled with fluid that forms in the oral cavity due to blocked salivary glands. This condition can appear on the lips, on the inside cheeks or on the gums, and is not dangerous.
Triggers for this condition vary, including:
Lip biting habit
The habit of biting the inside cheeks
Friction from the teeth
Punctured toothbrush or sharp edges of food
Lack of maintaining oral hygiene
Although this condition is not dangerous and does not require special treatment, you still need to see your doctor to make sure that this is true condition that you are experiencing and not other more serious conditions such as infections or even tumors. Because to ensure this it requires direct observation and examination. Therefore, check yourself with a general practitioner or ENT doctor, to ascertain the tendency of the disease. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection. If the diagnosis is mucocele, you may not ask for medication.
Meanwhile, avoid smoking, consumption of softer foods, keep the oral cavity clean, and do not need to worry too much. So, hopefully answering your question.
