Question Unknown White Spot on Xray

A few days ago I went to the dentist and had a routine x-ray to check for any signs of cancer (I chewed tobacco for 8 years so I get checked every year). For the first time ever something suspicious showed on the x-ray(link below). My dentist isn't sure what the white spot is so she referred me to an oral surgeon. Unfortunately the surgeon can't see me for at least 2 weeks and I'm freaking out a little bit.

Re: Unknown White Spot on Xray

White areas on X-ray mean calcification, so unlikely to be anything serious. It is dark areas that are worrying.
