Overcoming Cavities Accompanied By Bleeding Lumps In The Middle?
Night doctor. I’m a 22-year-old woman. My molars used to be cavities as a teenager. But I let it remain until now only the edge of the tooth, in the middle there are gums that sometimes swell. I used to bleed. But now no, it only grows like gum in the middle. Do I have to pull it out immediately, “If I leave it for a few years is it dangerous? Please answer. thank you
Hello Istaa, thank you for asking.
Dental caries (cavities) that continue to be left untreated, generally will continue to cause symptoms. The teeth become very vulnerable to infection. The gum-like part that you find, is probably the dental pulp. Pulp is a tooth nerve tissue contained in the root canal. At the time of dental caries to the roots, the pulp will be exposed and susceptible to infection.
Pulp infection is called pulpitis and can cause severe pain and swelling. This pain is generally very difficult to overcome with pain medication taken. In addition to pulpitis, you are also at risk for periodontitis, which is inflammation of the supporting tissues of the teeth. Periodontitis can cause teeth to waver.
Other possibilities that you can experience are abscesses in the gums and teeth that can expand, as well as cyst formation, or granuloma tissue formation.
The best way is to consult with a dentist. The doctor will judge what action is most appropriate to do. Keep your mouth clean by brushing your teeth 2x a day, use dental floss to clean between your teeth, avoid caffeine, soda, and sugary drinks.
Hope this answer helps yes. Regards.
