Has anyone ever had a gum exostosis? Care to share your experience?
I have a single exostosis on my upper gum. It is a small, bony growth under the gum that occurs in approximately 3% of people. It emerges in early adulthood and is more common in females, especially those who are stressed and have Type-A personalities. It is believed to be tied to teeth-grinding.
Mine is somewhat uncomfortable, so I will likely have it removed by an oral surgeon.
Has anyone else had this? Have you had it removed? What was the surgery and healing process like?
