Face and Jaw Surgery

active jaw bone growth

03/15/2010

Question:

For about 20 years I`ve had extra bone growth, both on the inside and outside of my right lower jaw. I always attributed it to never growing wisdom teeth on that side. I`m now in my 50"s and bone is actively growing at different times through my gums and is very painful. I have had 2 surgeries for this problem. What causes this and will it come back?
