I currently have aligners on and since I started the treatment I noticed a little white contour around my gums lower teeth, they lift a little bit. Is it something to be alarmed about?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
No, your gums are absolutely fine and nothing to be alarmed for. They are minor issues due to the realignment of the contour of your gums. Do continue to use aligner. When you remove your aligner please apply Rexidine M forte gel (if you feel any discomfort).
It is just contouring your gums to the same level. If you carefully look to the image you uploaded you will notice those white lines only on the tooth that placed below.
Realignment of the gingiva (contouring it on the same level).Treatment plan:
Continue using aligners.Preventive measures:
I do not think there might be any sharp edge, do mention to your dentist if present.Regarding follow up:
Follow up after seven days. Apply the gel when not using your aligner. Use a simple mouthwash like Colgate plux after brushing your teeth to keep your gums healthy. Warm saline gargle occasionally.
