Large boney protrusions between lower teeth?
I know these "things" have a name - I heard a dentist call them something once. But I can not remember. They are large (mine are large!) bumps on the bottom of the inside of mouth inbetween my teeth. They do not hurt and they have never bothered me. But since a recent toothache, I was looking in my mouth and noticed that they have changed over the years. One side has two pretty large "bumps" and the other side has two little identical ones and one bigger one next to it.
Does anyone know what these are called? They simply look like bone lumps. I don't really know how to describe them. All I know is that once upon a time, someone said to me that they are no big deal but they can cause problems when you get older. I never thought of asking what kind of problems!
Thank you for your help.
