Re: Gums help.

It could be Torus Mandibularis. If so it does not need treatment but see a dentist to confirm.

Re: Gums help.

I also read an article on this, I have been stressed about a rash i caused my self to get in the gentleman region by rubbing soap on the head that caused me to get a rash and blister.. and in the article it stated that Local stress appears to be a factor.

Re: Gums help.

I must mention the bony growth is not under the gum line but on the gum line it self, i make sure to brush my teeth twice a day and use mouth wash. i do not floss as often as i should could it still be tori? Like i said no pain at all. just annoying I have done some research and heard that local stress is a factor and i have been stressed over another problem i have been having.

Re: Gums help.

Thanks for the info John. I do indeed smoke tobaco but i only smoke 3/4 ciggerates max and thats not every day like 2-3 days a week and on a friday night when i am up town. I brush my teeth twice daily chew gum and I am a gym goer so I Drink that vitamin water we get over here in the UK. But i have let my self go on my diet a bit so i am assuming this could have caused me to get balanitis as well.
