Swollen Gums And Black And White Spots Appear?
Good morning, I want to ask that my gums are swollen, but there are black and white spots, is that not dangerous?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swollen gums usually occur due to an inflammation (gingivitis). Inflammation of the gums often occurs due to poor dental and oral hygiene, causing plaque of food scraps around the teeth and gums. This plaque will then experience hardening to form tartar (calculus), which can become a breeding ground for bacteria that cause inflammation. Not only swollen, inflamed gums also often look reddish, feel pain, bleed easily, and can also cause sufferers to experience bad breath. The appearance of black and white spots around the gums that you experience may be part of this plaque. It could also be, black and white spots are a sign of an infection in your gums, for example due to bacteria, fungi, or other microorganisms. Smoking, lack of nutrition, impaired immunity, and various other factors can also trigger this complaint.
You can first make the following efforts to improve your complaint:
Brush your teeth morning, evening and night before going to bed
Also clean between your teeth and tongue
Gargling using an antiseptic mouthwash or salt solution
Check your oral health regularly, every 6 to 12 months to the dentist
Do not smoke
Live a healthy diet, avoid consuming excessive foods that contain sugar
If the above method does not work to resolve your complaint, check yourself directly to the dentist so that it is handled well, okay?
I hope this helps.
