My 6 year old is having some issues with his little gums. Today I noticed that in the back of his mouth, his gum is growing over his little teeth. I am very concern about this, but before I take him to the dentist I wanted to see if I could do something at home first.
At approximately the age of 6-7 years children get their first set of permanent molars. As the tooth comes the gum will recede. You may try getting warm water and salt rinses done. It is best to get a dental examination done. A clinical examination is absolutely necessary before confirming the treatment. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
