Bone growth under right lower jaw inside mouth,swelling,bleeding happens when pressed

I am a married Indian man of 40 years. Since a month, I have a bone growth under my right lower jaw inside mouth. There was a bit swelling around it. I have done a whole mouth x-ray and the dentist says it s okay. They say it s not an wisdom tooth . It s a bone growth. The front of the bone, like a very small pea size, is now exposed. No pain around the area, except when dentist press it hard, a bit bleeding happens. What could this be and how to solve this ? I am taking a 7 day course of Augmentin 625mg twice a day and Tinidazole 500mg twice day for 2 days.

Welcome to hcm.

These type of bone growth happens in so many cases.
We do not worry for them until unless we have some problem.
This growth is not sudden it was there for a long time slowly growing.
Now accidentally it is noticed by you.
You dentist advice is right.
