Tori is usually caused by excessive biting pressures that occur anywhere within a person's bite.
They can occur beneath the tongue, on the palate and on either side of the bony ridge
that our teeth are rooted in.
Consult a Periodontist for determining the precise cause for your Tori. Referral to a Prosthodontist may be necessary for treating that area of your dentition to correct the bite dynamics causing the Tori.
