Lump In Mouth

Lump In Mouth

Lump in mouth: Sometimes a lump in the mouth can develop. There could be a number of reasons why a lump might present itself. Often people may worry that it is something sinister. Therefore, it is important that if a patient discovers a lump in the mouth that they seek advice from a dentist. Many lumps will turn out to be benign, however, they are still likely to need emergency dental treatment from a dentist regardless.

Dental Cyst

Dental cysts are a very common oral lump. If a patient has developed a dental cyst then it is advisable that they seek emergency dental help immediately. A cyst can cause unexpected pain that can come on very suddenly. The pain can also extend to the jaw. A cyst can contain fluids, air or more solid matter. A dentist can remove a cyst under local anaesthetic.


Dental Abscess

A dental abscess is considered one of the most painful dental problems. An abscess forms as the body’s way of trying to control infection. They can form anywhere on the body but are very common in the mouth. Like a cyst, a dental abscess will need immediate emergency treatment from a dentist. It is likely that an abscess will be drained of pus and antibiotics may be prescribed if the infection has spread. If left untreated the tooth will eventually need extracting.


Other causes of lumps in the mouth

There are other reasons why a lump could present itself. A lump could be a Fibroma, Mucoceles or Pyogenic Granuloma. The lump could also be cancerous, therefore it is important that if a lump develops that a dentist or doctor investigates further. Early detection of such issues makes it easier to treat.
