Extra bone in mouth
Hello all!! I have an extra bone growth on the inside of my teeth under my tounge. My family dr said it was ok that at some point it would have to be removed. It does not hurt unless I push on it with my tounge. What in the world is this!!
Thank you!!

If you are talking about a pair (or more) or bumps along the inside jaw under the tongue, these are called Tori.  The are completely normal extra bone growth, do not need to be removed unless causing pain or getting dentures.  The main cause of tori growth is bruxism, clenching or grinding.
