What are the causes of those little bumps in the roof of your mouth to become swollen and hurt?

Palatal bumps?: It could be a host of possibilities. Without seeing it in person, it's hard to say and only a guess. Irritation from food and inflammation from smoking would be my first two guesses. Have your own dentist take a look at it and try to establish the exact cause in your case. ...Read more

See Dentist ASAP: See your Dentist as soon as you can for examination, diagnosis and treatment. The swollen node could be from many things, not necessarily related to the mouth conditions.

See the Dentist and get this resolved so you can not worry. ...Read more

Possible infection: The most common reason for a painful swelling in the mouth is an infection. This is not something you can treat on your own. While antibiotics can help short term, unless the source of the infection is eliminated, it will keep returning. You need to see a dentist ASAP. ...Read more
