Bumps Under Tongue

Everyone has bumps under their tongues. Most of these bumps are salivary glands that produce the juices needed to digest food. But those other bumps, the ones that pop in for a few days, weeks, or months, and then disappear again, those are the ones people worry about.

What are bumps under the tongue?

If you have unusual bumps under your tongue, you are probably wondering where they came from. First evaluate if the bumps under your tongue are painful to touch or movement.

Often painless tongue bumps are blocked salivary glands or mucoceles. A mucocele is a blocked salivary gland that forms a clear bump under the tongue or along the sides of the mouth. These generally heal on their own, but if the bump becomes painful, swells to an uncomfortable size, or doesn’t heal after a few weeks, be sure to see a doctor.

Painful tongue bumps range from canker sores (sometimes known as fever blisters) to salivary gland stones and manifestations of oral cancer.

Canker sores can occur anywhere in your mouth and are very contagious, so be careful not to spread the virus in your mouth to other people or other parts of your mouth.

Salivary gland stones are supposedly very painful. They are treated with ultrasonic treatment which can take some time to accomplish, but the stone will eventually leave.

Oral cancer most often shows in older patients who have had frequent exposure to tobacco or alcohol, though it can also occur in people who do not fit any of the risk categories. If you feel a large bump under your tongue that swells or causes pain and doesn’t heal after more than two weeks, see a doctor as soon as possible.

How do you prevent bumps under the tongue?

Bumps under the tongue are hard to prevent, however good oral hygiene can make a difference. Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, as well as brushing your tongue, will help prevent bacterial infections in your mouth that can cause other types of bumps on your tongue and in your mouth.

Brushing your tongue is one of the most important parts of oral hygiene that many people overlook. The Orabrush is a tool designed specifically for your tongue.

It has soft bristles on the head that help remove that harmful bacteria and also combats bad breath. Just brush your tongue with an Orabrush morning and night (or whenever you brush your teeth) and see the difference of a happy tongue.

Orabrush and Tongue Foam—The world's best bad breath system.

Better Than a Toothbrush!

Ultra-soft, pointed bristles reach deep into the uneven crevices of your tongue and loosen stinky bacteria. These bristles are designed after the surgeon's scrub brush, the same brush they use to clean bacteria from their hands before they cut you open. (Toothbrush bristles, however, are designed for the smooth surfaces of your teeth, not your tongue.) The scraper then collects and removes the bacteria and residue generated from brushing, helping cure bad breath.

    "[Dr. Bob] knew that toothbrushes, made for hard surfaces, would not work as well on tongues. He had researched ways to clean salmonella off raw chicken and learned it took flexible bristles to pry the bacteria from soft folds. Based on that, he hatched the idea for the Orabrush. It has soft, rubbery bristles for scraping across the tongue, back to front."
