Jaw exostoses are slow asymptomatic benign bone growths.
Usually they develop on the upper and lower jaw surface, but can occur in the palate or near the outer part of the jaws.
Larger exostoses prevent the patient from comfortably wearing removable dentures, because they develop pressure ulcers, or the prosthesis adjusted for its development looks unattractively or no longer performs its function.
Therefore, if exostoses prevent the function or removable dentures, it must be removed.
Treatment – surgical removal of growths, levelling the existing bone growths and creating uniformity in the jaw area.
