Lumps Appear Inside Cavities?
At night, I experienced a hole in my lower right tooth at the very end. Now there is a lump in the hole in the meat but the side of the teeth is rocking. Will there not be any problems?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, cavities themselves are a problem that must be treated as soon as possible. Meat that grows in cavities is called pulp polyps. Although pulp polyps are not cancerous and generally do not give any symptoms, pulp polyps are more prone to inflammation, injury and infection than healthy gums. In addition, the presence of pulp polyps in cavities will make it more difficult to clean cavities. Food scraps will easily slip between the polyp and your cavities so that your teeth will eventually become more damaged and brittle.
Tooth decay can also be a cause of your teeth becoming more frequent pain and also causing gum infections. Infection in the gums can spread to the tissues around the teeth (to the soft tissues around the teeth, bones), can also spread to other organs such as the lungs, heart, and also to the blood (sepsis). This condition is certainly very dangerous if it happens, therefore, you should immediately see your dentist. It is better if the examination and management of your teeth are not delayed too long if you do not want your teeth to get more damaged.
Teeth that are still strong enough will be tried to be patched by your dentist. In this case, the polyp in the teeth will be removed first. If the tooth is too fragile and cannot hold the fillings anymore, the doctor will recommend the tooth extraction along with the removal of the polyp and later the tooth that has been removed will be recommended to be replaced with dentures or dental implants. The installation of dentures and dental implants is intended to prevent shifting of other teeth, eating disorders, and also speech disorders. Consult with your dentist directly to get an explanation of the actions that need to be done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
