ORAL SURGERY : How To Remove A torus palatinus

Torus Palatinus is a bony protrusion occurring on the palate.

Although palatal tori are present on the midline of hard palate in mouth, they are usually less than 2 cm— though the size may change over time.

Palatal tori are usually more common than torus mandibularis.

Torus Palatinus is the name that identifies exostoses developing in hard palate along midline of the palatine sature.

Torus Palatinus is completely benign meaning it is just harmless bony growth.
