Treatment of Oral Tumours
Excision is the best treatment available to remove the tumors. The tumor removed are sent for a biopsy just to confirm if they are benign or malignant. Subsequent follow-up treatments are required based on the diagnosis and to keep the tumor under check.
Diagnosis of Oral Cysts
The mucous cysts can be identified by the dentist just by looking at it. They are conspicuously visible as they are formed in the mucosal lining.
All other forms of cysts are not visible from outside and hence cannot be found for its presence. But these oral cysts manifests as swellings as they become infected. When you visit the dentist, your dentist might recommend taking an oral X-ray. All the non-mucosal cysts are visible in the X-ray images and in this way, their presence can be diagnosed and ascertained.
Treatment of Oral Cysts
Most mucosal cysts require surgical intervention. The dentist would remove them using laser or excision.
Other non-mucosal cysts are removed by studying the X-ray report thoroughly. The cysts are generally scooped out in a surgical intervention. Like tumors, the scooped out cyst tissues are sent for biopsies just to confirm that they are not cancerous in nature.
