Hello. I want to ask. I have loose teeth. However, the upper front teeth have small flesh but they do not hurt if you press them without causing blood. I had this from when I was in Elementary School. To be more precise, after I knock my teeth out. Is it dangerous? What actions should I take? Thanks. thank you

Hi mutiaprlyn,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The appearance of a flesh-like lump between the loose front teeth, as long as it doesn't cause pain, doesn't bleed easily, and doesn't get bigger is generally a normal thing. This condition can arise as an adaptation of the gums and other tissues that support teeth due to gaps between your teeth. So, your gums will enlarge to fill the gap. This also occurs in conjunction with the pressing process, for example when you bite or chew food on the front side.


It could also occur due to other causes, for example:


Mucocele (salivary gland cyst)
Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), which is usually triggered by poor oral hygiene, tartar, infections of the oral cavity, cavities
Tumors, for example fibroma, melanoma, and so on
Vitamin C deficiency (scurvy)
Hypersensitivity of the gums to the toothpaste or mouthwash used
The side effects of using dentures, braces, or other improper dental equipment
Drug side effects, for example anti-epileptic drugs, corticosteroids, birth control pills, and so on

The size of the lump is quite large (more than 5 mm in diameter) and feels like it disturbs you in talking or chewing food, there's nothing wrong with having it checked directly to the dentist. What kind of treatment that needs to be done will be adjusted to the cause of the lump, it can be enough with observation, administration of drugs, to surgery.


Currently, you can first go through the following efforts:

Do not pry or force the lump
Brush your teeth 3 times a day, namely in the morning, evening, and at night before going to bed using fluoridated toothpaste, then continue to rinse with salt water.
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those high in vitamin C.
Avoid using drugs carelessly
Stay away from cigarettes

Hope this helps ..
