What this this bump that I have on my gum near the back teeth?

Could be abcess...: Since I don't know how old you are, it is hard to say. If you are in your twenties then it could be your wisdom teeth erupting if you still have them. If you don't still have your wisdom teeth, or you are older, then it could be a gum infection, with a small abcess. People can also get tumors on their gums, especially if you smoke.

Many possibilities: It could be from an infection in the tooth from trauma, small fibroma (benign), spot of irritation from fingers. Best way to rule out infections is to visit your dentist and have an xray to determine if there is an intra-boney infection. If you can wipe it off it might be the start of a yeast infection

I have two small white bumps on my gums below my front bottom teeth and it doesn't hurt at all. No other symptoms. Good dental hygiene. What is it?

White bumps: How long? Size? Exact location? Hard or soft? Compressible? Moveable? Symmetrical? Any redness around the white areas? The rule of thumb is that all white areas in/on what is normally pink tissue should be examined. Wouldn't it be great to have your Dentist say, "That's normal."
