Abstract

Oral tori if present can cause noticeable discomfort not only for the patient but also for the treating dentist. Some tori can be overcome by relief if simple while others have to be removed surgically. Sometimes a dentist may face case (s) of maxillary or mandibular torus at medically compromised patient (s) where surgery is contraindicated. This suggested design shaped as butterfly was suggested in such a case to help a medically compromised female patient suffering from big sized bilateral torus mandibularis is to wear removable prosthesis without making surgery to remove it. The weakness of the design as it lacks to any lingual major connector overcome by thick strong labial bar. The design was found to be satisfying for the patient standard requirements.
