Overcome The Enlarged Gums In Newborns?
how to treat hereditary gingival fibromatosis in newborns?
Hello Mrs. Novia! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hereditary gingival fibromatosis is a rare, benign condition of the mouth that is characterized by slow enlargement of the gum area. This condition can occur alone or be part of a particular syndrome. This condition is usually not seen until permanent teeth have developed. This enlargement of the gums occurs due to excess collagen production in the gum area. This enlargement may extend to the palate and floor of the mouth, making it difficult for the child to close his mouth and speak. Treatment of this condition varies, depending on the severity of the disease. If the enlargement is not too large, it can be done at the dentist's office. However, if the enlargement is very large, it may be necessary to undergo surgery to improve the function and appearance of the gums. Mothers should consult with pediatricians and dentists about this. Better yet, if the pediatrician and dentist are in the same hospital. The two doctors will plan what actions should be done and when these actions need to be done. The doctor will explain to you the results of the examination and the action plan. You can ask your doctor what are the benefits and risks of the action.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
