Swollen Gums In Children?
at night, I want to ask a question. rnanak I am 2 years old, his gums are swollen in the front teeth, indeed his front teeth are damaged and already decayed if you can say, yesterday I had time to get rid of my teeth but I was given Sanmol and Amoxilin medicine ,and it’s been a week and it hasn’t come to fruition, instead it grows again on the right side and starts to swell, I want to ask for a solution, can a 2 year old child have his teeth removed?rnAto what can my husband and I do if the swelling subsides? do.rnthank you in advance😇
Hi Cindy L,
Swelling that occurs in your baby's gums can occur due to an infection in the teeth, inflammation of the gums (pulpitis) or because of teeth that will grow on the gums. Amoxilin is an antibiotic drug that is given to treat infectious diseases while sanmol contains the active ingredient paracetamol which is used to relieve symptoms of pain or fever.
In children, tooth extraction is generally carried out if the condition of the infected tooth causes severe complaints to the child, but because the teeth that grow are milk teeth, observation and treatment for dental hygiene can also be carried out to avoid re-infection. We recommend that if you have done an examination but there is still no improvement from your little one's complaints then do a check with the dentist after you finish taking the medicine as recommended so that an evaluation of the results of the treatment is carried out and consider the next steps to take to reduce your little one's complaints.
In addition, apply good brushing practices to your little one and teach them that taking care of their teeth is important. Brush your teeth 2 times a day using toothpaste and a soft brush and brush your teeth before going to bed to prevent dirt that is a source of infection that can cause infection in teeth that are not cleaned.
I hope this information is helpful.
