Mucocele Removal | Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery, Scottsdale, AZ

Many people notice small bumps or lesions in their mouth from time to time. While these bumps may appear to be cause for concern, it may, in fact, simply be a mucocele – a harmless cyst.

How A Mucocele is Formed

Saliva moves from a salivary gland via tiny pathways. A mucocele forms when one of these pathways gets blocked or otherwise damaged, whereby forming a cyst. This lump is usually firm to the touch and may change in size.


Mucocele cysts are usually found inside the lower lip, on the roof of the mouth, inside the cheek, or on the floor of the mouth. Frequently they are formed when one sustains an injury to the face, and are also common if one repeatedly bites or sucks on the lower lip.

A mucocele can be diagnosed by your doctor or dentist, but it will ultimately have to be removed by an oral surgeon. Check out reviews and be sure to contact us to schedule an appointment – 480-657-7065
