Do You Know Tori?

Updated: Jan 10, 2020

With Tori, you’re not only going to be in pain, you can also grow bone in areas that may be dangerous for your oral health. That’s where Westwood comes in to save the day - so that patients can easily maintain their health.

Tori are benign calcified bone that can grow in areas on the palate, under the gums of teeth bearing areas, or inside the lower mouth, such as this pic shows. Even though they are a benign process, they can grow to cause discomfort or, rarely, obstruction of the airway. The tori shown here, was removed because it was causing discomfort to the patient's tongue.
