I'm not quite sure what it is. It looks to be a growth of some kind? Any high risk behavior such as smoking or drinking? I would recommend seeing either a dentist or your primary care physician to get it checked out. If you have medical/health insurance, I would probably go to your regular care doctor first.
Hi. I don't drink or smoke. It looks like white skin but it doesn't go away. I can't see a doctor or dentist any time soon. It also hurts if i put pressure in the area. Do you have any ideas on what it could be? Is it associated with any kind of gum disease or gingervitis or someting? What should i do until i can see a doctor, which wont be for like 2 months.
There are a number of potential causes behind the white spots on gums. The cause may range from oral cancers to allergic reactions. White spots on gums may be a cyst, a small pocket filled with fluid, and sometimes they are canker sores. It may also sometime causes by Salivary gland inflammation. I think you need evaluation by an oral health professional who spot the cause.
