Re: Dental tori Surgery
I think it is pretty rare to have dental tori removed.
I had two removed from my upper and lower outer jaw areas. The main reason I had them removed was because they had grown so large that I was getting little bits of food (crumb size) stuck between the tori and my cheek and I kept getting sores from them.
The exodontist who removed them said they were the largest he had ever seen.
For the surgery he cut my gums along the tooth line, pulled it back, shaved down/contoured my bone, pulled the gums back up, and stitched the gums back into place.
It was painful for a bit, but healed up well within a couple weeks.
