Abnormal Gum Growth In Newborns?
In the afternoon, I want to ask about my child’s gums. I just gave birth two days ago since my baby was born, the lower gums have a part that rises upwards like teeth. My son’s lower gums appear to have two teeth even though they are not teeth. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know if it’s the gums or if there’s meat growing in the gums. I am very worried about my son’s condition. Is this a disease? Or is it normal? How to handle it? Please answer yes. thank you
Hello Novia, Thank you for the question.
Abnormal gum growth can be caused by the following conditions:
hereditary gingival fibromatosis, which is an excessive growth of gum tissue from birth in the form of a lump on the gum
congenital gingival hyperplasia, which is the growth of the gums covering other structures
To ascertain whether this condition is a serious condition and requires further treatment, please check directly with a pediatrician. The doctor will ask about your child's complaints and examine this condition to find out the cause. After checking and knowing the cause, the doctor will determine the next treatment. Please keep breastfeeding your baby.
Hope this information is useful.
