Handling Open Gums And Small Circles Appearing?
, my child’s upper front part of the gum opened there was a small circle so that his teeth could be seen in the open part. At first I thought it was a new tooth that had grown. But after I brought it to the doctor it turned out that it was not a new tooth but the root of the tooth. gums that open small round can come back to normal? r nthank you
Hello Momy Qila, thanks for your question
First, you have to make sure that the tooth root that appears on your child's gum is the remaining root or tooth root that is still good. If it is the remaining root of the tooth that is left it should not be left alone because it has the potential to cause complaints of bad breath, infection and inflammation of the gums and surrounding tissues. Residual roots are usually caused by trauma / impact that causes broken teeth, imperfect tooth extraction, or brittle teeth due to caries. Meanwhile, if you mean a tooth root that is still good, it is necessary to identify what causes the tooth root to be visible from the outside, for example trauma or a collision around the gum which causes tissue tearing.
In principle, every diagnosis of a disease or medical condition has a different treatment step. A careful and direct physical examination by a dentist can help determine further steps for treating dental problems that your child is experiencing. Therefore, it would be better if you consult directly with the dentist who previously treated your child.
If a certain medication or medical procedure is needed to cure or restore a pathological condition (abnormal) to normal, of course the doctor will inform you. While waiting for further treatment from the doctor, make sure your child keeps their teeth clean and healthy by regularly brushing their teeth at least twice a day, especially after eating and before bed.
Hope this information is useful
