Hi, if you can upload a photo of these "lumpy pointy things" I will be better able to give you more accurate opinion:

You can use this link for instructions: ,

You can use the "PAPER CLIP ICON" ,

OR you can use a photo hosting site like: , ,, and then send me the link.

More than likely these pointy things are just boney spicules coming out or alveloar bone that was not recontoured properly to make everything mor even and smooth., But both of these situations are very easy to handle. So if able, please send me the photos. Thanks.
