Serenity Dental Office Information

There are different size, shape and patterns of papillae on the tongue. What you are describing may be completely normal. Take a look at some images you may find online under "tongue anatomy." The swollen tonsil may not be normal and you should let your physician take a look. Another effective treatment for thrush is a rinse called OraCare. Whatever you are using to treat the thrush, it will take more than a day or two. If the bumps and tonsil continue to concern you for more than a few days, please see your physician.
