Tori are benign overgrowths of bone on the roof of the mouth or the inside of the mandible. This common feature can be present for a lifetime without any indication for surgical removal. However, there are some cases in which tori will need to be removed for the placement of partial or full dentures. In many cases, the presence of these bony overgrowths make adequate retention of dentures difficult or even impossible. The removal of tori is generally performed in the office using IV sedation.
