Oral Cysts: The Most Common Reason for Bumps in the Mouth
While there are many possible oral health concerns that can cause lumps and bumps in the mouth, one of the most common is oral cysts that affect the various tissues of the mouth, including the gums, tongue, throat, and mucosal linings of the lips, cheeks, and oral cavity, among others.
There are several types of oral cysts, one of which is a mucous cyst that affects the tissues in the inner cheek or lip and tongue. Mucous cysts commonly appear because of irritation or injury to the affected tissues and they usually heal even without medical intervention apart from mucous cysts of the gums and the floor of the mouth.
Another type of oral cyst is a dental cyst which forms near or over the crown of unerupted wisdom teeth. Dental cysts can cause tooth movement, particularly if it is too big and while extremely rare, it is also associated with the development of oral cancer. Periapical cysts, on the other hand, are oral cysts that form because of tooth pulp infection that was left untreated.

Our patients come back to us because we truly care about the care you receieve. Here are some of the things our amazing patients have to say about us:
Dr. Courtney and her staff are super friendly and made me feel really comfortable. I had to get implants for two "baby" teeth i still had left b/c i never grew permanent teeth in their place. I had to be sedated for the operation and expected to be out of commission for a couples days and in a lot of pain the following week. However, that evening I felt surprisingly good with minimal pain.
Dr. Myers is the best. I have been a patient of his for about 5 years and every time I come he makes me feel super relaxed and at ease. I have had everything from a simple cleaning to crowns and everything is virtually painless afterwards. I would recommend him to any person who is seeking a great dentist and staff.
