Flesh Appears Between 2 Teeth?
at night, I’m a beautiful princess, want to ask. A few days ago I experienced swollen lower molars, only today the pain subsided. But after the pain went away, flesh grew on the gums between the 2 maxillary teeth, maybe the size of a soybean seed. The meat doesn’t hurt to hold. But it’s annoying, like a nuisance. Is this normal or is there a certain remedy to get rid of the growing flesh itself?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a flesh-like mass that grows between 2 teeth generally comes from excessive gum growth due to an inflammatory reaction, also known as gingivitis. There are many triggers for this condition, but the most common are:
Infections of the oral cavity, for example due to fungi, viruses
Immune system disorders, for example due to HIV/AIDS, diabetes, undergoing chemotherapy
Side effects of drugs, cigarettes, and so on
Not only lumps resembling flesh, people with gingivitis also often experience other complaints, such as saliva containing blood, pain around the gums and teeth, bad breath, loose teeth, and so on.
It's best if you visit the nearest dentist directly.. An in-person physical examination is necessary to determine whether the cause of your complaint is gingivitis, or whether there are other causes, such as pulp polyps, gingival abscesses, cysts, mucoceles, tumors, and so on. All of these possibilities need to be distinguished considering that the treatment can be different, some can be overcome through medication, but some require surgery.
At this time, avoid overhandling or forcibly squeezing and picking the lump that appears. Always keep your mouth area clean, by brushing your teeth regularly, using a soft-bristled toothbrush to minimize irritation or injury to the lumps that appear, then gargle using an antiseptic mouthwash. First reduce the consumption of foods that can make the gums uncomfortable, such as foods that are too hard, too hot, or too cold.
Hope it helps ya..
