Tori Removal

Tori are areas of excess bone in the mouth. Dental tori that are along the lower jawline are called mandibular tori, and tori that form on the roof of the mouth are called tori palatinus. In both situations, these excess growths are typically harmless and benign. Tori removal are indicated if it is causing pain, especially if they are punctured by sharp foods, causing food packing, difficulty speaking when interfering with movements of the tongue or problems with the correct fit of dentures or implants.
