The anatomical location of ranulas is challenging to the dental surgeon in terms of their management. The regional complexities of the area call for a skilled approach because of a number of vital structures within. Although complete excision with removal of the sublingual gland continues to be the gold standard of treatment, recent literature highlights successful outcomes by simple modification of the conventional ranular marsupialization technique. This micro-marsupialization option is minimally invasive and advantageous in children due to shorter procedural time, minimal discomfort, and no postoperative complications. The following case report highlights the successful management of a case using a modified micro-marsupialization technique.
