Sudden overgrowth of bone in the oral cavity

Good day Doctor. I am a female, 30 years old. I recently noticed what seems like bone growing in my mouth at the bottom teeth and some at the back. I went to the dentist for my annual clean up and asked them about this. He mentioned something about calcium immunity and if the bones worry me I should see an endocrinologist. He assured me there is nothing to be worried about. Can you give me more info on this and what does calcium have to do with the growth. to much or to little calcium intake? The overgrowths does not bother me at all. Is there any treatment of what can I do to prevent further growth? Thank you

It's difficult to say without seeing what this looks like. Do these growths show on prior x-rays? It's best to compare previous x-rays to current ones and then assess. I suggest you get a copy of your xrays and see a maxillofacial specialist for an assessment.
