AUTHOR(S): Dr. Neha Hajira, Dr. Pulkit Khandelwal, Dr. Harleen Sachdeva and Dr. Sumit Khare
ABSTRACT:Torus Mandibularis is a bony overgrowth usually found over lingual surface of mandibular premolar region. Being inherent in nature, it poses difficulty in fabrication and wearing of a denture as it may cause abrasion, ulceration and limited tongue space. For the convenience of patient, the dentist needs to use alternate methods to make impressions, provide relief under denture and at times modify the design of the prosthesis itself. The aim of this article is to review challenges posed by presence of lingual tori and their management during denture fabrication.
