Mandibular tori are common. They are benign excessive bony growths that occur inside the lower jaw bone. They can impact eating, speaking, and can develop traumatic ulcers quite frequently. The benefits of removal include:
- Prevention of traumatic ulcers
- Increase tongue mobility
- Easier eating and speaking
Removal of mandibular tori is a simple and relatively conservative procedure which is performed using ultrasonic Piezo technique. Piezo allows gentle removal of bone and its re-contouring. Platelet rich fibrin membranes from patient’s own blood area also used quite frequently which promote a more rapid soft tissue healing.
Recovery is quick and completed within 7-10 days.
