Doctor, my child is 4 years old, has flesh growing on his lower front dingus, a lump in the middle of his teeth and a slightly curly shape. The position in the middle of the teeth consequently between the teeth one and one slightly separated because of the lump, what is it?

1 Answer:

Hi Jullie, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

A lump between 2 teeth can be caused by several possibilities:

Large, elongated lip frenulum (the frenulum is the membrane that connects the tooth to the gum)
Gum polyps, which can appear due to inflammation and chronic infection of the gums
Infection or abscess of the gums
Pyogenic granuloma, which is a protrusion on the gum that looks like a tumor that appears in response to inflammation or trauma to the mouth


To be able to ascertain what lumps are there between your child's two teeth, it's a good idea to take your child to the dentist for an in-person examination. The above possibilities can be distinguished just by looking at the lesion on your child's gums directly.


If it is caused by a large and elongated frenulum, then usually no action is needed because it usually does not cause any disturbances or symptoms other than aesthetics. The doctor can cut a small part of the frenulum if you want to remove it. If it is caused by chronic inflammatory conditions in the teeth such as polyps and granulomas, then the cause of the inflammation must be addressed. both usually occur in children who have cavities or deep caries that are not treated promptly. Tooth decay and caries in children need to be handled immediately by a dentist so that later it does not interfere with the process of eating and talking to children. Tooth decay and caries increase the risk of infections such as lung infections and heart valve infections in children. If the lump is caused by infection and abscess, it is necessary to take measures to empty the contents of the abscess and administration of antibiotics to treat the infection.


While the cause is not certain, you should always ensure that your child brushes their teeth properly twice a day, in the morning and at night. Reduce the consumption of sweet foods in children, and if you finish consuming sweet foods, make sure the children brush their teeth properly. We recommend that children always have their teeth checked regularly to the dentist every 6 months.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
