    Hi all,

    Starting to finally pay some attention to my teeth, so I'll be frequenting this forum a lot more!

    The dentist said I should have my impacted wisdom teeth removed and sent me off for xrays. I'm not due back at the dentist for a few weeks and in the interim was wondering what the white 'blob' was above my upper wisdom tooth? Any advice would be appreciated!

    Looks like an odontome (extra tooth-like mass).
