Thanks for writing to us.

A painless hard lump in between last two teeth means it is a swelling arising from the jaw- either the bone or the mucosa or a swollen gland.

Perhaps physical examination, xray of the oral cavity / fine needle aspiration cytology of the lump can help in diagnosing the problem.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
