Bump under jaw

My 2 year old has had a bump under her jaw for the past week or so. The vet is coming out for vaccs/coggins on the 26th so I was just keeping an eye on it until then.

But, today it dawned on me that maybe the bump is related to her teeth? I seem to remember reading something about that at one point in time... I think. Any ideas? Am I making up the thing about teeth?

Yes I believe that the bump does have to do with her teeth moving and her adults coming in if im correct.

Yep! Real common in 2 and 3 year olds.

Yes its her teeth shifting that is causing that. My vet told me what is happening is that the adult teeth are coming in but because the caps are still there the jaw bone compensates. Once the caps are gone those teeth will move up and the jaw bone will go back to normal. My 4 year old is still have her teeth shifting. This will be the last year, or suppose to be anyway lol
