Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Gum regrowth is possible. You need to go for gum surgeries or flap surgeries. The attached images (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity) indicate the formation of calculus near your gums. I suggest you go for oral prophylaxis (scaling and root planing of teeth). The issue will resolve once you get this done. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily. Brush softly over your gums.


The Probable causes:

The probable cause is the formation of calculus.

Treatment plan:

I suggest you use a mouthwash.

Preventive measures:

Brush twice a day and avoid brushing vigorously.
