Abstract

Exostoses are benign, asymptomatic bony outgrowth arising from cortical bone and occasionally from spongy bone along the maxillary or mandibular arches. They tend to appear in early adolescence and may very slowly increase in size with age. Theyare not usually a concernto a patient with complete dentition. However, in an edentulous patient they may pose a major concern for denture placement over these areas, leading to pressure and ulceration, which demands their complete surgical excision. The following article presence a rare case ofbilateral massive buccal exostoses, which was incompatible with the patient ability of prosthetic rehabilitation and hence a resective osseous surgery was carried outfollowed by a complete denture rehabilitation.
