Bump on gums and on x-ray

If anyone can give me some info, it would be great!! I had a panoramic x-ray done and my dentist noticed a few little lump-like things underneath about 4 of my bottom teeth. He didn't know what it was so he referred me to an oral surgeon "for evaluation". If I feel the inside of my gums carefully I can feel a small bump. I have no idea how long it has been there - perhaps for years and I never noticed. I also am pretty sure I am congenitally missing a molar right where the bump..no primary OR permanent tooth was ever present. But if it was due to this, wouldn't a dentist know this? I am a little worried and curious since I'll probably have to wait weeks to be seen by an oral surgeon..

Re: Bump on gums and on x-ray

Are the bumps on the inside of your lower jaw? If so it could be Tori, which is a Boney Enlargement, it's no problem. If not, do any of your teeth hurt? Call the Oral Surgeon and tell them you just saw the Dentist and got a Pan. and you are having a problem and they should be able to get you right in.
