Puffiness Appears In The Gums That Are Attached To False Teeth?
I put the crown bridge dentures in the dental artisan. Permanent for 3 years. And lately my lips often swell and there is pus. What is the cause? The dentures?
Thank you for the question.
Crown brigde are dentures that are installed to fill the gap of empty teeth, by attaching an artificial dental crown that bridges 2 teeth on the right and left. This type of dentures, as long as they are well cared for, can often greatly improve the appearance of previously toothless teeth, for example because they have been pulled out, broken in an accident, and many other conditions.
The appearance of swelling and pus on your lips as you experience them is most likely an infection. This infection can be located purely in the soft tissues of the lips, gums, or maybe the surrounding tissue. Often, in addition to swelling and suppuration, this infection also causes the lips and surroundings to feel pain, redness, and give off an unpleasant odor. Mainly, this infection occurs due to poor oral hygiene. Other factors, such as poor immune system, lack of nutrition, presence of sores in the oral cavity, smoking habits, and allergies or irritation due to the use of toothpaste and certain mouthwash can also aggravate this condition.
Our advice, you check your complaint directly to the nearest dentist. Some types of drugs or maybe certain medical measures will generally be recommended by your doctor so that your complaints improve.
In the meantime, what can be done is:
Diligent and cleaner when brushing your teeth Clean also between your teeth and tongue with a special cleanser, followed by gargling with salt solution Do not consume food and drinks that are too hot, hard, and sticky Do not make out or have oral sex with an unclear partner history Sexually increase endurance with eating patterns and healthy lifestyles Hope it helps yes ..
