BONE GROWTH EXOSTOSIS

Good Health (Australia) - - Health Coach / Body Signs -

Around three per cent of adults de­velop harm­less bony growths in the mouth, most of­ten on the palate. The most com­mon cause of this con­di­tion is grind­ing your teeth. Most swellings are no more than about 2cm across and don’t re­quire treat­ment un­less they in­ter­fere with eat­ing. Surgery can then re­duce the swelling.
