I'm sure if there was anything to worry about your dentist would have referred you to a specialist.

They look fine to me

Your gums look fine - probably the teeth showing through

Hi everyone--thank you for your responses. You all seem to think it looks normal, an online dentist said it looked normal, my dentist in person said he doesn't know what to think, my mother said it looks a little odd, and my girlfriend (I texted her the same pic) agreed it looked a little odd. Anyway, I;m going to the docs on Tuesday about some one sided sinus pain and a swollen node in my neck thats been there for 3 years and Ill ask him about this and post back. Thanks again.

Doctor took one look and said leukoplakia and he seemed really concerned about what to do kept humming and hawing and has set up an urgent referral to the ENT. I don't chew tobacco. I don't smoke. I'm in bits. Help me

Well, it seems like everyone here thought it looked normal, but of course, we aren't specialists or doctors, so the "advice" we can give is limited. I will say, though, that leukoplakia is not always oral cancer related. It can occur due to irritation. The best thing to do is to stay calm. You're under the care of doctors, and whatever it is seems to be hardly noticeable at this point. Worrying will only make it more difficult.

Try and relax. I can understand that can be very difficult but stressing will only make u feel worse... Doctors refer people as a precaution a lot of the time and if you went into the doctors office very concerned about your issue he will act upon your request. I'm not a specialist but from the image you posted I wouldn't be concerned your guns looks fairly normal. I can see the white dots you are worrying about remember how much bacteria passes through the mouth on a daily basis it's likely to change. I have a geographic tongue which is like patches of discolouring I thought the worst but try not to jump into conclusions it will most likely be nothing.
