Customer Question

I noticed that if I look really hard I can see several small bumps on my gums. Pink to a lighter pink. Painless and smooth. I am a bit concerned. Have you these before?

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

For me to give you a better answer is it possible for you to upload a photo of that area here? You can either attach the photo directly with your reply or use an external photo sharing site like and paste the URL of the photo in your reply.

Unfortunately I cannot get a good shot. Actually now that I get in there, they seem like they are in in gum. Not on top. Totally smooth. About the size of a pen tip.

Im sorry but the nature of your question is such that a photo would be required for a confident answer from me. I will opt out so that another expert can try to answer it without a photo.

I am Dr C, and will be happy to help you. You said you see several bumps varying in pink color on your gums. Could you tell me if this is near your teeth? Are they just bumps? Are they divots also?

Is this something you just recently noticed? And since you noticed it, has there been any change in size, shape or color?

I would really like to help you, if you can give me any further information that would be great.
