Hi Mawar,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Holes in teeth can be triggered by various factors, ranging from poor oral hygiene, the habit of consuming sweet and high carbohydrate foods, frequent prickling of teeth, and so on. Cavities are not only painful, they can also be very disruptive to their appearance, risking the spread of infection to the area around the teeth and other distant organs.


The appearance of a flesh-like mass inside the cavity is called a polyp pulp. This condition arises due to inflammation around the gums due to cavities that cause excessive growth of the gum mucosa but is benign. Although generally not dangerous, the presence of polyps can make the gums more at risk of recurrent bleeding and infection. Poorly maintained oral hygiene, coupled with excessive friction and pressure on the gums around the cavities, can further cause these polyps to enlarge.


Since the root of the problem lies in the cavities, the best treatment is certainly done by overcoming the holes in the teeth, either by filling them or extracting them. That way, the pulp polyps will generally shrink on their own. Therefore, check yourself directly to the dentist. With direct evaluation, you can also distinguish other possibilities that can cause lumps on the gums, for example cancer, infections, and so on.


As an initial treatment, you first need to do the following:

Do not force or scrape cavities
If you feel pain, take paracetamol first
Avoid chewing food too hard on the side of the cavity
Always brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with salted water to keep it clean

Hope it helps ..
