[SOLVED] Do Tori Go Away On Their Own?

Mandibular tori are not particularly common – about 5 – 10% of the population will have noticeable mandibular tori. While some estimates suggest that the number could be as high as 40%, we don’t see any in our office. Torus palatinus refers to a tori that occurs in the upper palate. These toris are often located at the midline of your palate. The cheek (buccal-side) of lower and upper teeth can be affected by tori. These tori are typically seen in the molars or premolars. In these areas tori are almost always present on both sides (bilaterally) 😉 Tori are slightly more common in males 👍 [1]
Is there a reason for the popularity of tori? Experts believe there may be many reasons for the growth of tori. However, genetics is often the most common. These types of growth are more common among certain ethnicities. A tendency toward tori is also a part of families. A study of twins by the National Institutes of Health supports the idea of a genetic component. Researchers looked at identical and fraternal siblings to determine if the tori was present or absent in either one or both. Only 6 percent of twins were affected by identical ones. The percentage of fraternal twins with more genetic variations, where there is more variation, has increased to 20%. [2]

Noreen Saenz at, explains how since tori bone jet out away from your teeth and smooth mandibular structure, they’re at significant risk for injury. The majority of the injuries occur during normal everyday activities rather than an incident that might cause injury to your teeth. We’re talking about eating and chewing different textures of food. Although your teeth are able to bite into hard or crunchy foods, the same bite can cause severe pain if it hits against the gum tissue. It’s not uncommon to see cuts in the gum tissue around your tori after meals. You might also irritate or hurt your gums from daily activities, such as brushing your teeth. [3]

Has anyone ever had to take radiographs on a sick patient because it was an absolute nightmare? Does it cause a gag reflex or is there a more serious problem? Ropey, copious saliva? Radiation fear? The dreaded fear of radioactivity? Recent radiographs were performed on a patient I had seen for hygiene. After updating his medical history, we prepared for radiographs. It was difficult and frustrating to position the sensor as this patient presented me with mandibular tro, which I hadn’t seen in my life before. They were difficult to place and only displayed the crowns on the mandibulars teeth. Linden Crockett (Kuantan, Malaysia), last revised this page 84 days ago [4]
