Hi..What home treatment can I apply when my hard palate is swelling? Thanks

See a dentist.: The more important question is why is your hard palate swelling? This is not normal. It can be due to oral habits, allergies to certain foods, a simple irritation by certain foods such as grapefruits or other citrus fruits, etc.... I would recommend a visit to a dentist. If they can't identify the problem, see a physician. ...Read more

Diagnosed today with a mucocele. I have a hard bump that fluctuates in size for some time now. Jabbed hard palate with toothbrush prior to swelling. ?

May be due to trauma: It appears that the location of said mucocele is on your palate. Jabbing the toothbrush may have caused this. If this is new, it may resolve on it's own. If this does not resolve then you may need to have it removed. Many mucoceles are located in the floor of the mouth or inside of the lip and the vast majority of those need to be excised. If this doesn't heal then see an oral surgeon for options. ...Read more

How long can you have an tooth abcess for without not much swelling, I have had mine for 3yrs causin redness on front gums@pain side palate?

Tip of the iceberg!: While you have been lucky (actually unlucky !) for not having much swelling, what is probably going on inside your jaw is a serious infection destroying bone and possibly effecting other teeth either now or in time. I have personally seen patients with large untreated infections and infected cysts become permanently numb and lose teeth from letting these types of infections go untreated. ...Read more

Make sure nothing is lodged between the palate and the denture. Have a dentist check all these things. ...Read more
