Question
my wife needs to get lower dentures but first she will need oral surgery to remove bilingual tori would you  the cost of this surgery

Answer
Brian -  the cost of removing bilateral tori varies depending on their size and position on the lower jaw bone.  Every different location has their own fees, but in general, each torus will cost between 500-750 dollars to remove them and smooth the bone.  Those fees are here in the US, but I guess they are similar in Canada.
