Please help me see if this is physiological atrophy or pathological atrophy
From the photo, this consideration is gingival atrophy, which will not atrophy under normal circumstances. The cause of gingival atrophy may be caused by gingivitis, periodontitis and other reasons, and may also be caused by food impaction caused by improper diet at ordinary times. It is recommended to take the child to the stomatology department for examination and treatment.
For your own consideration, there are several reasons for children’s gingival atrophy. The first one is obvious, one likes sweets, and some children stay up late to play with mobile phones for a long time, and their lives are irregular, which will cause this situation. I suggest you actively observe your illness changes, so as to effectively relieve the symptoms. You don’t have to worry at all.
If this symptom occurs, I suggest that you should pay more attention to observation. It is possible that gingival recession causes this stabbing pain, and it is also possible that periodontitis occurs. This is not necessarily physiological atrophy, but pathological symptoms. It is suggested that you can go to the dental hospital for a detailed diagnosis.
