Bone Spurs

DEFINITION - Mandibular periostitis or abnormal bony growth due to trauma.

Causes - 
Most often caused by trauma from bit to lower jaw bone.

Can be extremely painful causing behavioral problems when bit contacts area.

Surgical pariostial elevation for removal of affected bone has had minimal success, therefore better to try various bits to minimize contact to the area.
