what are these 'bumps' on either inside of the lower jaw...

vieja_gwMay 5, 2010

I have hard 'bumps' behind the front teeth inside gum area of the lower jaw. A dentist once gave these bumps (boney)a name & said not all people have them & usually found in mouths where the teeth are crowded. Anyone know what these are called(I have forgotten the name) & anyone else have them? Just curious!

I think they're called "tori" or "tauri". I have them.
