Dr. Daniel Quon answered:

Will keeping ice on mucocele make it go away?

Unlikely

Obstruction
A mucocele results when the duct to the affected salivary gland is occluded and does not allow the saliva to empty into the mouth. Ice will probably not resolve the obstruction.

What exactly is the mucocele under the tounge?

Cyst

Tongue
A mucocele is a mucous retention cyst that can occur in any area of the mouth where there are minor salivary glands. It occurs when the duct is severed from the gland or the duct is blocked and saliva pools under the soft tissue. A rather large type of mucocele, called a ranula, can also occur under the tongue. This involves one of the major salivary glands in this area.

Dr. Meng K. Syn answered:

how can I brush teeth after mucocele surgery?

Carefully

Teeth
There is no reason you should not be brushing your teeth after this soft tissue surgery. Just be gentle around the surgical site. There is likely a stitch or two where the mucocele was removed. The soft tissue should be closed and healing within days. Using a soft children s tooth brush may be easier till the wound area heals.

Dr. Daniel Quon answered:

Advice about wisdom teeth removal and mucocele?

See an oral surgeon

Tooth_extraction
A mucocele is an enlarged salivary gland, usually due to obstruction of the duct that allows the saliva to empty into the mouth. They commonly occur inside the lower lip and sometimes in the floor of the mouth. An oral surgeon can perform a clinical exam with the appropriate x-rays to advise you about your wisdom teeth and provide you with additional information about the mucocele.

Can you tell me if you have a mucocele, does it itch?

It can

Itch
Sensory nerves get stretched as the tissue stretches, and this can be interpreted by your brain as an itching sensation. Let your Dentist examine your mucocele. Referral to an Oral Surgeon may be in order.
