A certain percentage of the population develop exophytic (outgrowths) of dense normal bone know as tori or exostosis (depending upon their location). These are benign growths that are of concern only if it interferes with speech, eating, placement of a denture or you continually traumatize the area during function. Typically they are only removed if they cause a problem. The surgery is simple and recovery quick.
If the area is not causing you a problem, I recommend that you have your dentist look at the site at your next regularly scheduled appointment. If needed your dentist can refer you to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for further evaluation and treatment as indicated. ...Read more

We all have TMJ: Saying I have TMJ is like saying I have knee, it is a joint, you mean to say you believe you have tmd (temporomandibular disorder). You say the r side upper & lower, perhaps it is a problem of your facial nerves on that side, neuralgia. Teeth, gums and bone? That does not sound like a joint disturbance. Many doctors mistakenly point to the TMJ as the culprit when they don't know what else to say. ...Read more

it can happen, usually it is a boney spicule. A piece of bone that flakes off as the jaw remodels and works its way up through the gums till it is poking out and causing irritation and annoyance.

Hope this is helpful,

Tooth extraction (#14) 4 days ago with bone grafting. Now slight swelling to the gums. Also bad taste in my mouth. Is this normal?
Can someone with moderate gum recession around some teeth actually present with minimal bone reduction?
Not really...: The bone would have to resorb at least as much as the gum has receded, otherwise the bone would be peeking into the oral cavity, which does not happen. Moderate gum recession = moderate bone loss. Conversely, the bone can resorb more than the gums recede, and that will usually result in periodontal pocketing. ...Read more

Recession?: What you describe sounds like gum recession which often results from brushing too hard. Most of the bone loss I see is tied to 6mm pockets or more; 3mm is "normal." Your specific case could be an exception, and your question can be best answered in person, and would only take a minute at your next exam. ...Read more

Two of my bottom front teeth are in a different position than when I was 15. I do have slightly receding gums. Would bone loss be the likely cause?
Possibly: Bone loss can allow teeth to shift. Shifting teeth can cause bone loss, especially if teeth move off of their bone support. If you notice a little shifting now, you will probably see a lot of shifting as time goes by. Please see an Orthodontic Specialist to evaluate the positions of your teeth and possible stabilization treatment options. Consultation with a Periodontist may also be indicated. ...Read more

Prominent roots: One can often see the outline of prominent roots just under the surface of the gum that covers the bone. This varies greatly from individual to individual. The bone follows the contours of the underlying roots of the teeth. If your Orthodontist thinks what you have is normal anatomy and healthy, I wouldn't be concerned about it. ...Read more
