Pointy thing coming up through where wisdom tooth was 12 years ago

I had my wisdom teeth pulled 12 years ago - I'm 34 now. My gum on the lower right side where the wisdom tooth was has a spur or something growing up. It's still covered by the gum, not as hard as a tooth, but not really soft either. What is it?

I should add that I just went to the dentist for my check up less than 2 weeks ago and got a clean bill of health. Also the spot is sore to the touch.

It might be a bone spicule working its way out - have a google for it on this site (you can use the search box in the top right corner of this page and search Dental Fear Central for previous posts on the topic!).
