What Causes Bumps On The Roof of The Mouth

teeth, health , smile, dentistBumps on the roof of the mouth are a reason to worry especially if they don’t go away quickly. However, most such bumps are easily treatable.

Key points:

– Burns and dental-treatment injuries.

– Canker sores, cold sores due to the herpes virus, oral candidiasis, oral mucous cysts or bone-growth.

– Hyperdontia (extra teeth), epstein pearls (baby-mouth bumps) and human papillomavirus (non-cancerous and cauliflower-like bumps).

– In rare cases, the bumps might be a sign of oral cancer.

See the dentist if the bump does not go away, and if there’s pain or foul smell.
