I have a mass in gums in my bottom jaw between two tooth roots. It was noticed in a panoramic X-ray quite a long time ago, at least 10 years ago. My dentist at the time decided we would just monitor it every time I got a new pano. It has never changed in size so he didn't think it was anything to worry about. This past week I went to a new dentist and told him about this. He recommended I go see an oral surgeon, even if the mass has not changed. Do you think I need to see the oral surgeon? My insurance will not cover it, and I'm worried about having to do any extensive tests (and paying out of pocket for it) if it is nothing to worry about in the first place.
Thanks for your advice!
