    I just joined this forum and just read your post. Yes--I know what it is. I have the same thing and my hygienist has several that are even big. They are part of the jaw and they have a name but don't know how to spell it. It starts with exos something. Or else ES something. It's a long name. My hygienist said a lot of people have them and they just are part of the bone in the jaw. Nothing to worry about at all.
