Tori are non-neoplastic reactive or developmental localized overgrowths of alveolar bone. Tori or exostosis comprised of dense cortical and lesser amount of bone marrow with a thin and poorly vascularized mucosa. Tori are seen more commonly during middle age of life. Tori can be seen in mandible (Torus mandibularis) as well maxilla (Torus palatinus), but palatal tori are seen in slightly more cases as compared to mandible. Common complications with tori include difficult speech and problems encountered during complete denture fabrication. The etiology of torus palatinus and torus mandibularis remains obscure. Size of tori varies from few millimeters to few centimeters in diameter. Surgical resection of tori is the mainstay of treatment which is done in large size tori which interferes with tongue position, speech, mastication and complete denture construction. The aim of this paper is to present a case of bilateral mandibular tori with mini review describing types of tori and clinical significance.
