Reply to "Bump behind lower front teeth inside the floor of the mouth"

Wow, I just read your follow up message. I too had what I felt like a wisdom tooth coming in the back of my jaw. ( Which is really weird because I had my wisdom teeth removed when I was 18, in 1982! I also had a bad experience at the Dentists Office. My Dentist was great, but I had a bad reaction to the anesthesia, and woke up fighting! ) Ok, so back to this lump, I thought maybe I was having a second set of wisdom teeth coming in, so I went to the Dentist. ( My first visit since 1982, this was in 2000!) The reaction I got when the Dentist looked in my mouth, was not very reassuring. He said "Oh, I've never seen anything like that before!" He assured me that it wasn't another wisdom tooth! Needless to say I wasn't instilled with much confidence, but I let him do an X-Ray. It turned out it was a piece of broken jawbone. He scheduled surgery, but before the appointment, with a little coaxing from me I was able to remove the bone. I did have to get some antibiotics, because my jaw had gotten all nasty and pussy. I did get a good teeth cleaning out of it, and no cavities, but was scolded for waiting 18 years between checkups! (And I didn't, because, when I see the Dentist this week, it will have only been 13 years! LOL)
