Hello! Thanks for your question.
Are the lumps on the outside (towards the cheeks) gums, or the inside (towards the tongue)?
Also, how long have you noticed them? Pain? Growing or staying the same size? Also, might you be able to send a photo? Thanks.
My computer just froze up, after I had typed a lot - sorry. ) -:
I'd NOT worry! It sounds like you have what is called "mandibular lingual tori". They are bony growths. Generally have been there for years, harmless, and I have them too, as does about 15% of the population. You may want to 'Google' them-
But, I'd not worry. Very common... and that's why your past Dentists have never mentioned it to you, because it's quite normal to see such in a lot of mouths!
*please review, Google, etc., and feel free to write back about any concerns you may still have - OK?
Does the above make sense?
I wanted to see what you thought. Does the " THREE HARD LUMPS IN LOWER GUM BELOW TEETH" seem to be likely appearing to look much like the 'tori' mentioned above?
I'd think it does, but thought I should check with you...
*PS: Please "do" rate my answer if you would please. Also, if any further concerns, do not hesitate to ask - OK? All the best to you. ( -:
Hi, have you had a chance to see if what you have is indeed tori ?
How are the Tori ?
Have you been able to confirm that is what they are?
