Typically, dentists diagnose the existence of a frenum in children. However, there may be some circumstances in which an older individual may choose to undergo a frenectomy, such as if it is required for the proper placement of dentures. Our dentist at Westgate Smiles in Bartlett, IL will speak to you about whether or not this procedure can benefit you.
A torus is an overgrowth of bone within the jaw that typically does not cause any problems. However, it is important to monitor tori for any issues that may pose, and some individuals may need to undergo a tori removal or reduction in some circumstances, such as if they are being fitted for dentures. Westgate Smiles can provide tori removal to those patients in need of this procedure.
