Do these white bumps look to be cause for concern?

I have 2 white round bumps on my upper gum above two of my teeth. It also extends out in a line above a third tooth. They are hard to the touch and aren’t extremely painful on their own unless I really push around on them. They don’t feel like they are going to pop like an abcess, but they recently appeared. Do they look to be cause for concern? The rest of my gums don’t have any kind of bumps like these.

Answer: White Bumps On Tissue

By Expert 10

It appears that these round white hard bumps are protrusions of bone, known as buccal exostosis. This extra bone growth is nothing to be concerned about at this time, as long as you are not in any pain. Most dentists consider the bone a variation of normal anatomy, rather than a disease. It is unclear on the causes, however many feel bruxism (grinding and clenching) as well as genetic factors has something to do with it. It is hard to know for sure with a picture alone, so its best to mention this area at your next routine dental visit. Your dentist will be able to identify and give you the exact diagnosis.
