As If There Is A Lump Of Pus In The Gum After Pulling The Tooth?
Hello, I just pulled out the root of the tooth about 3 days ago, but I felt like something was strange because on my gum, there was a lump of white flesh on the tooth root, like a lump of pus that didn’t hurt, but I just felt uncomfortable. , is it dangerous or not?
After the tooth extraction is done, the gums will have an open cavity left which will improve over time or if the cavity is large enough, the dentist will perform sutures. During the healing process, there can be several conditions that make the gums look like pus, such as due to infection of the gums, food residue in the gum cavity where the tooth was extracted, bone tissue that looks white, canker sores, or other conditions.
For this reason, pay attention to the presence or absence of other symptoms such as swollen gums, fever, pain, the emergence of pus from the gums so that they are immediately checked by the dentist so that the cause is known and treated. Brush your teeth regularly 2 times a day, take medication given by the doctor as directed, and go back to the doctor to control the condition of the tooth after extraction. If necessary, the doctor will provide additional drugs or measures to overcome if a problem occurs.
