Please do not make duplicate posts about the same problem. I'm only leaving this thread as the images are much clearer.

Yes mine told me the same, acid reflux,I also have cronic pharyngitis because of the reflux so maybe this is the cause for the foliate papillae to be inflamate,in your case I think is the same,acid reflux makes them to be iritate. But isn't this condition scary to you?I'm think of require a biopsy.I'm obsessed with them,all day watch in the mirror

Circumvallate papillae that are completely normal. There is no need for biopsy. In fact, to biopsy normal tissue like this could be regarded as overtreatment. Go Google them and you'll see lots like them.

Also circumvallate or foliate papillae of normal appearance. They are not due to reflux. I've been looking at tongues for 40 years and you look normal.

Oh,but what about that little white patch on foliate papillae?Another dentist told me to require a biopsy,could that be a cyst,or a tongue capillary lymphfangioma?Thank you for your reply doctor.

Foliate papillae I think, but that white patch I don't know what it is,maybe a inflamate lingual tonsil,I think the doctors opinion is more important than mine
