Our team of experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeons can help you navigate the process of tori removal, from initial consultation to post-operative recovery. Let us guide you through this journey towards optimal oral health.
What Are Tori?
Mandibular tori are bony growths that develop along the upper or lower jawline. These benign bone growths are often asymptomatic, meaning that they don’t cause any pain or discomfort. However, they can cause problems with dental hygiene, such as difficulty in cleaning the teeth and gums around the tori. Additionally, mandibular tori can make it challenging to wear dentures or other dental appliances.
Why You Should Have Your Tori Removed
Tori removal may be necessary for several reasons. Firstly, if the tori are causing discomfort or pain, removing them can alleviate these symptoms. Secondly, if the tori are causing difficulty in maintaining oral hygiene, removing them can help prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Finally, removing the tori can create a smoother jawline, making it easier to wear dental appliances such as dentures.
Different Techniques Used for Tori Removal
At Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center, we use several different techniques for tori removal. The choice of technique will depend on the size and location of the tori, as well as the patient’s overall oral health. The following are some of the techniques we may use:
- Traditional surgical removal – This technique involves making an incision in the gum tissue overlying the tori and before removing the bone. The gum tissue is then sutured back into place.

Our Tori Removal Procedure
Before the tori removal procedure, you will meet with one of our oral and maxillofacial surgeons for a consultation. During this consultation, we will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and discuss the different tori removal techniques available. We will also discuss any tori removal complications and answer any questions you may have.
On the day of the tori removal procedure, you will be given anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. The procedure itself typically takes around one hour, and you can go home the same day. We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you recover quickly and comfortably.
Recovery After Tori Removal
Recovery after tori removal varies depending on the individual patient. In general, you can expect some swelling and discomfort for the first few days after the procedure. You may need to stick to a soft diet for a few days to allow your gums to heal fully. We will provide you with pain medication to help manage any discomfort and antibiotics to prevent infection. You should avoid strenuous physical activity and smoking during the recovery period.
