Tori growth as related to migraines: I am 67 years old. My tori is enlarged and is still growing.

I have suffered with and been treated for migraines since about 15 years old. Is there any research that might suggest a relationship between the bones in the jaw and migraine?

It seems a bit unusual that this bone structure is still growing at my age. I have even had maxillary nerve treatment by a dentist in up-state New York. ... Visitor from MN

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.
