Tori Removal

The Mandibular Tori is a series of large bony bumps (Exostosis), that occurs in some patients in the lower mandibular between the premolar and molar area. These bumps may be the cause of speech problems, diet issues and overall satisfaction and comfort. For patients who are looking to place dentures, the mandibular tori can interfere with a comfortable and secure fit.

Using a hard/soft tissue laser Biolase Waterlase iPlus we can provide a less invasive surgery with cleaner and more precise incisions, less vibrations from hand tools and faster recovery times.

What to Expect with a Tori Removal

For laser tori removal using Biolase Waterlase iPlus, patients receive a local anesthetic before the procedure. Because there is no heat or vibration, and very little sound, even patients who are anxious about dental work are comfortable with just local numbing. If you are still concerned, talk to your dentist about other options. Your overall comfort is important.

The dentist then uses the laser to access the mandibular tori, adjusting the laser to remove the bone. When the procedure is done, they will use the laser to “bandage” the area to promote fast healing. In rare cases, sutures are not necessary, but most patients do require a few stitches.

Laser tori removal is the less invasive and offers the fastest healing times with fewer complications.

Tori Removal Complications

Laser tori removal comes with few complications, but, as with all surgical procedures, any time you open up the skin there is the possibility of complications. Common side effects may include bleeding, swelling, and some pain. Generally, you can control these with the guidelines above.

If you experience excessive pain, additional bleeding, and swelling that won’t go down, this could indicate a possible infection. If you experience a fever and a general feeling of being unwell, call your dentist.

Mandibular tori can (and do) grow back. If there are underlying causes that can be treated (e.g., bruxism), addressing those may help prevent them from re-occurring.
