Bump Behind One Tooth...HELP

Hello,

A couple of days ago I started noticing a bump on my gums behind my left canine tooth. I, the hypochondriac that I am started Googling everything I could find, but everything turned back to it being gingivitis. I brush my teeth and floss three times a day even more depending if I have a snack. My gums don't bleed and there is no pain, it's not red, there is no puss coming out. It is just one bump behind the tooth. So I don't think its gingivitis.

It all seemed to have started when the dentist tightened my wires and the tooth started pushing back.

Has anyone had this problem and if so what is it?

I have not personally experienced this, could it be (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torus_mandibularis)?

Have you gone to see a dentist about it yet?

If your tooth moved significantly, the gums are used to having space and are now squished together. I had a huge diastema and when it closed the gums protruded out the back because they simply had no where to be.

After the week my gums went back to normal and my teeth are starting to look more straight. Thank you, I was very concerned
