A Lump In The Gum That Has Been Pulled By A Tooth That Was Accidentally Pricked By Food?
Hello, just two weeks ago I pulled a tooth with the importance of installing breces. Then the tooth extraction gums were pricked by food. I didn’t pick them up then there were lumps like lumps coming out of the gums but I didn’t know for sure they were from the gums or from the side of the gums. This lump is not sick and does not interfere with just inflammation or canker sores or what? R nThank you

Lumps in the gums that appear suddenly and do not feel pain are often not dangerous. This lump may indicate the following conditions:
Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) Mucocele (salivary gland cyst) Gum polyps (benign tumors that originate from the mucosa) Infection, for example due to fungi, bacteria, or viruses Benign or malignant tumors Other without direct examination, it is difficult to identify what exactly causes the lump. Our advice, check your complaint directly to the nearest dentist so that further observations can be made. If the lump is thought to be harmless, there is often no special treatment step that needs to be taken other than observation. However, it could also, the doctor recommends that you do additional tests, for example a biopsy, if you suspect a lump appears due to a more serious cause.
Here are some suggestions that you should do:
Do not squeeze or gouge the bumps that appear. Brush your teeth properly, use a soft bristle toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Gargle with an antiseptic mouth rinse. Reduce consumption of spicy and oily foods. Not carelessly consume drugs without doctor's advice.
