The Flesh Grows On The Gum Area?
good afternoon, I am a woman of 27 years. I wanted to ask, my molar teeth at the back had not yet grown, then I felt something strange behind the chuck, I saw that it looked like the flesh grew as big as half a grain of rice. when you feel it doesn’t hurt, the shape sticks up in the gums behind the molars near the throat cavity. what do i need to do? do I need to go to ENT or bgm. explanation please. thank you
Hi Putriabcdp .. Thank you for the question.
Lumps in the gum area can cause discomfort, especially when eating and talking. Some of the causes of the appearance of lumps on the gums are:
Mucocele - fluid-filled sac that can appear on the lips, mouth, or gums.
Inflammation of the gums / gingivitis - symptoms of swollen gums, redness, bleeding easily
The protrusion of the gums due to the molars that will grow, but the position of the teeth that will grow is not straight / pointed sideways
If you feel the lump is getting bigger, accompanied by pain, redness, then it's a good idea to see a dentist. So that doctors can carry out an examination directly and can be proposed panoramic photos. So that it can be seen whether the cause is due to problems in the teeth, gums, or something else. Meanwhile, you should do: maintain oral hygiene, brush your teeth before bed and after eating, avoid touching the enlarged part, for a while you can eat on the side that doesn't hurt.
