Torus Mandibularis

This is an image of fairly small mandibular torii.  (The term torii is the plural for torus.)  They are hard, bony protuberances of the bone of the inside of the lower jaw.  Sometimes they interfere with the wearing of a lower full denture.  If this is the case they are easily removed by an oral surgeon.
