Abstract

Hyperostosis are the non- malignant small bony surface growth occurring on the buccal aspect of maxillary and mandibular alveolar process with predominance in premolar and molar region. The exact mechanism of development of hyperostosis is unclear however it is suggested that it may arise due to interplay of environmental and genetic factors. They have limited growth potential and normal arrangement of tissue, so they are not considered as tumors. This article presents a very rare case of unilateral maxillary buccal hyperostosis in canine-premolar region and its surgical management.
