Linea alba buccalis is a horizontal white ridge seen on the buccal mucosa at the level of the occlusal plane of the teeth. This is a hyperkeratotic lesion caused by friction from the teeth. This is found in almost every individual at varying degrees and may be mistaken for leukoplakia. You should visit a dentist so that it can be examined so that the findings can be confirmed and treated accordingly.

As my colleagues suggested, this is called as linea alba buccalis, which is not an abnormality. U can ignore it.

The raised line at that level is common as it is junction where upper and lower jaw comes in contact when we close the mouth.And if painless no need to worry. BUT IT IS ADVISABLE TO CONSULT YOUR DENTIST.
