I don't know what to do if you have any answers for me i would be so greatfull. thank you for your time & have a blessed day! shayrileyrose
If you don,t have systemic bone disease, focal growth of jaw bone is probably a benign process. With regard to denture, periodic adjustment may be necessary to relieve pressure spot, surgical removal of bone may not be mandatory. Seeing a prosthodontist is advised.
With regard to your nerve injury problem, pharmacologic intervention may help resume normal nerve function, seeing a neurologist or orofacial pain specialist is advised.
