Why Does Mucocele Appear After Wisdom Teeth Grow?
At night, my wisdom teeth have just been seen growing. But my gums appear mucocele, is this related to the dock?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Mucocele of the mouth is a protrusion in the form of a dome-filled, small, soft sac in the mouth. The color is generally red, but it can also be white and transparent. This condition occurs due to damage to the salivary ducts, injury to the inner lips or mouth due to various things, such as the habit of biting the lips and sucking on the cheeks or inner lips, the growth of teeth that are not neat or abnormal, or can be due to causes that unknown at all.
So if you experience mukocele, it could be something to do. And if what you experience is a mucocele, that condition can heal by itself over time. Healing will be faster if the mucocele is not played around, bitten, or deliberately solved.
The problem is if the lump is not a mucocele, but a salivary gland swelling, a viral or fungal infection, or a tumor. So if your condition does not improve within a few days, you should check with your doctor for further examination and treatment.
Meanwhile, keep your teeth and mouth clean by regularly brushing your teeth twice a day, avoid smoking, alcohol, and don't break the bump yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
