Tiny white bumps in the back of mouth

I have been having tiny white bumps in the back of my mouth that are fluid-filled. They usually burst from me talking because my teeth sort of rub against them. Also, sometimes the inside of my cheeks feel patchy and it takes a while forthat to go away. Can anyone tell me what exactly is going on?

Thanks for writing to us.

The fluid filled white bumps are abscess,which developed due to-chronic cheek biting/deep caries/periodontitis etc.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical as well as radiological evaluation done by a dentist to rule out cause of bumps.

The pus has to be drained and curetted.

Take amoxycillin along with analgesics.

Rinse your mouth after every meals.

Brush and floss your teeth daily.

Swish with warm saline frequently.

Take care.

Hi, the ulcers may be due to continuous irritation from the sharp teeth cusps that injure the tongue and cheeks continuously. Please apply Mucopain and Hexigel ointments alternatively 3-4 times a day and consult a dentist to see if your occlusion needs to be corrected. Take care!
