Ask Dr. Shaun: What are these bumps on my teeth?

Much like fingerprints, no two sets of teeth are exactly alike. Although every mouth has a lot in common, and generalizations can be made, each of us will encounter a little weirdness from time to time and wonder, “Is this normal?”

In this segment of BURST tv, Dr. Shaun answers a viewer’s question about a common dental finding called mamelons. They are certainly more prevalent in children, but some adults find themselves with these funny enamel protrusions too. Learn more about why they develop, when they usually go away and what to do if you or a patient wants them gone.
