What are mucoceles?

Why undergo mucocele removal? Mucoceles are painless, fluid-filled cysts that grow inside the mouth, typically on the inner bottom lip.

Mucoceles appear clear, glossy, and fragile and are susceptible to large growth.

Mucoceles can be disfiguring and uncomfortable in everyday tasks such as talking and eating. In this case, you may consider opting for having your mucocele surgically removed.

Contact us now to understand what treatment we offer for mucoceles removal.

Teeth misalignment or braces can also be a cause of mucoceles. Our patients benefit from a FREE ORTHODONTIC CONSULTATION within our premises with our partner clinic SW3 Dental to discuss potential causes and solutions to prevent developing a mucocele.

Mucocele cyst causes

Mucoceles often occur due to direct trauma, whether that may be a sports injury, or due to blockage of salivary glands.

Damage to salivary glands results in a disruption in the flow of saliva, causing it to build up and collect into a bubble, a mucocele cyst.

Often, mucocele growth is due to a long-term habit of biting, picking, or sucking at your lips.

Read more here about other types of cysts and how they can form.

Surgical mucocele removal

Surgical mucocele removal is proven an ideal treatment for these lesions.

Surgical mucocele removal includes a small, neat incision to the cyst, and mucocele sac removal.

Dissolvable sutures are then placed to close the incision.

Our lead, Dr Sadek, performs mucocele surgery with great care and attention to ensure minimal scarring and effective healing.

Mucocele removal surgery is pain-free, as performed under local anesthetic, with the procedure itself amounting to 30 minutes.

Mucocele removal aftercare

Mucocele removal aftercare involves maintaining good oral health to ensure bacteria are kept away from the wound.

The dissolvable sutures fall on their own after around 14 days.

Furthermore, mouth jewelry such as lip piercings should be cleaned thoroughly and regularly with sterile instruments.

The mucocele removal aftercare is completed by being very careful not to bite the wound, as it may cause it to rupture.

If you notice a newly formed bump in the corners of your mouth, enquire now with LipomaCyst, to receive a treatment plan for your mucocele removal.
