Hi Syaiful,

Thank you for asking

Pain in the gums may indicate inflammation (gingivitis). If this condition appears accompanied by a whitish gum color, then perhaps the trigger for this inflammation is an infection, it could be due to bacteria, fungi, or other microorganisms. Gum infections are prone to occur in people with poor oral hygiene, people with problems with teeth and gums (for example, cavities, tartar, periodontitis), users of braces or dentures that are not properly cared for, or also people. with a body immune system that is less than optimal (for example, people with HIV or malnutrition). The microorganisms that cause infection can enter and infect the gums, giving rise to pus which causes the color of the gums to become whitish or even yellowish. Often, this condition also appears accompanied by swelling, bad breath, and stiff jaws that make it difficult for the sufferer to chew and swallow food.

Not only that, your complaint could also arise due to other reasons, for example, a tooth that will erupt (the whitish color may come from a partially visible crown), mucocele (salivary gland cyst), abscess (pus-filled pocket in the gum), infection fungus, diphtheria, tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils), lichen planus, leukoplakia, and so on.

It is better if you have your complaint checked directly to the nearest dentist. The doctor will evaluate the condition of your gums, teeth, and mouth while determining the best treatment according to your condition.


Be more diligent in brushing your teeth
Follow by rinsing with salt water after brushing your teeth
Do not pick up the whitish mass on the gums
Take paracetamol if the pain is very disturbing
Avoid oral sex with people with no clear sexual history
Maintain endurance by consuming nutritious foods, resting more, and exercising diligently

Hope it helps ..
