Unfortunately, the cyst is unlikely to resolve on its own and surgery is required. This surgery may be done under local or general anesthetic depending on the position and the size. Surgery may be limited to marsupialization with sutures opening the cyst to be in continuity with the lining of the floor of the mouth. Another form of surgery (with lower recurrence rate) is removal of the cyst usually in conjunction with sub-lingual gland.
