Hard Lumps on lower interior gum behind teeth
 Login/Join 
posted
I have two fair sized lumps that are very hard, like bone, on the interior of the lower teeth, one on each side. one is approximately 1/2 inch wide and approximately 1/3 inch deep. The other is about 1/3 inch wide and about 1/3 inch deep. They are not painful. I have viewed the website for diagnosis of mouth issues and do not see a picture accurately representing my issue. I have read that hard lumps are not an issue and that hard lumps are of great concern. I will be contacting a dentist asap, but would like to know how insistent I should be in getting an appointment and if a traditional dentist would be my best choice. Thank you so much in advance.
