Diseases of the gums and oral cavity are a fairly common problem in the life of every person. Of course, the best option is to contact a specialist in dentistry. One of the most common lesions is a growth on the gum, which is the formation of an abscess of a certain size. An outgrowth or cyst involves the formation of a pathological cavity inside which a liquid or a pulpy mass is contained.
Typically, this occurs when the infection enters the gum tissue( eg, trauma, any infectious disease).In the absence of treatment, the growth on the gums increases in size, and the infected blood is spread throughout the human body. As a result, there are other negative consequences.
The build-up process begins with an inflammation of the tissue located between the root base of the tooth and the bone itself. The danger is that at any time it can open itself spontaneously, as a result of which a fistulous course is formed.
Fistula is a kind of protective reaction of the body when it penetrates the infection, because through it comes the inflammatory fluid or pus, the harmful products of microbial activity, etc. Determine the presence of fistula can be a thorough examination of the damaged area. As a rule, it is expressed in the form of a swelling with a small wound in the center of the tubercle through which a purulent liquid can ooze.
Symptoms of the appearance of a cyst on the gums are considered to be a rise in body temperature, swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck and behind the bovine shells, general weakness of the body, systematic or persistent headaches, the appearance of swelling and pain. This is only part of the unpleasant consequences to which the cyst on the gum leads. Treatment should be started only after an accurate diagnosis by x-ray of the jaw.
Of course, the growth on the gums should be treated at an early stage, because in this case the disease is easier to eliminate. The most simple method of disposal is the removal of the damaged tooth, after which it is necessary to completely clean the gum from the contents.
But at the moment, modern technologies and techniques allow the
to be removed from the gum without surgical intervention by a specialist. This is a therapeutic method that does not severely injure the patient's psyche and does not lead to tooth loss. But, more often than not, this method requires a whole course of treatment, so it is more time-consuming.
The task of an experienced dentist is to clean and thoroughly wash the root canal with special tools and solutions. After eliminating the harmful microbes and bacteria, it is necessary to fill the cystic cavity with a dental paste, thanks to which the damaged bone tissue is restored.
There are also folk remedies for combating the formed build-up on the gum. For example, one popular method of treatment is a home ointment made from flowers of calendula, yarrow, dandelion root, sorrel, grass sweet clover, tansy. The resulting collection should be crushed thoroughly( you can use a meat grinder), add one part of Ichthyol or Vishnevsky ointment and a few drops of calendula oil. The resulting composition is applied to the damaged part.
Of course, the easiest way to prevent the formation of a cyst, rather than treating it. Therefore, it is advisable to visit the dental office regularly, daily to look after the gums and oral cavity, to lead a healthy lifestyle( exercise, balanced nutrition, lack of bad habits, etc.).
