Weird growth on X-ray

Hi! Does anyone know what this strange growth-like thing could be on my X-ray? It doesn’t cause me any pain and I had no idea it was even there until I went for a check up and had X-rays taken. The dentist doesn’t know what it could be. I’ve never had a piercing, even though it looks like one! These two X-rays where taken almost 3 years apart, so it is not growing. Any thoughts would be so appreciated!
Thanks!

Good day

Looks like a odontoma, probably compound odontoma. This is classified as a hamartoma, which means it has limited growth potential. Usually we only monitor and only treat if symptomatic or if it causes problems with adjacent structures.
In your case, only monitor the lesion.
