PDF: Surgical management of Palatine Torus


Torus palatinus is a specific name to identify exostoses developed in the hard palate along the median palatine suture.



Despite of not being a pathological condition, its presence requires attention and knowledge regarding its management. Surgical removal of exostoses is indicated when the patient frequently traumatizes the area of palatine torus during mastication and speech or when it is necessary for the rehabilitation of the upper arcade with complete dentures.
