Common Reasons for Oral Bony Growths
Posted on 8/15/2019 by Rodney Rastegar
Everyone is a little different. This is true in many ways when talking about your body. Some people are short, some are tall. When it comes to your oral health, the same rules apply. Everyone's mouth and teeth are different. Some people experience oral bony growths. While it is possible that they are not a big deal, it is a good idea to learn about the different reasons for these bony growths. There are a few fairly common reasons that this happens. Knowing What They Are Oral bony growths are also known as Tori. There are two types of tori, the tori palatinis and tori mandibularis. These are benign growths that can occur on either side of the mouth and the palate. The person suffering from these bony growths may or may not know they are even there. They do not necessarily cause any pain or discomfort and do not present any danger to the person that has them. They are often found during routine checkups in our office. The Reasons Behind ThemThere are plenty of reasons that a person has these bony growths. Genetics can play a role. It is also possible that some type of trauma to the area can result in a bony growth. For people who do not inherit the bony growths or do not suffer a trauma, the most common reason is their lifestyle. Bony growths are linked to a vitamin deficiency. People who follow a diet high in calcium or a diet heavy in fish are also at risk for bony growths. There is also a link to people who chew on frozen meat. The other risk factor for bony growths that is very common is bruxism. Grinding of the teeth can cause the bony growths to form. While bony growths are not normal, they also rarely represent any danger to the individual that suffers from the. They may or may not require treatment. We can help determine what to do about any bony growths in the mouth that you have. For more information about this or any other oral health issue, contact our office to schedule an appointment....
