Palatal Tori: Palatal tori is a slow growing hard lump in the roof of the mouth that is usually painless. These growths run in the family. It is not cancerous but can become sore from eating hard or sharp foods such as chips. It needs to be removed if you want to wear an upper denture. As with any changes in your mouth it is a good idea to have a dentist examine the lump to rule out cancer or tumor.

Normal: As the palate is developing while you were in the womb it consists as three parts that merge to form the roof of the mouth. The two largest parts come in from the side and fuse together leaving a midline ridge of bone and lining. It is a normal result of palate development.
