  Buccal bone exostosis like torus palatines and torus mandibularis are broad-based, non-malignant surface growth occurring on the outer or facial surface of the maxilla and/or mandible, they could be found in the premolar and molar region and are the rarest entities. The diagnosis of a buccal exostosis is based on clinical and radiographic findings. Surgical management is not always indicated and should be well managed to get the most advantage of this condition.

  The following paper presents a rare case of bilateral buccal-sided maxillary exostosis, which was conflicting with the patient ability of restoring her edentulous maxilla, and its successful resective osseous surgery.
