Parry Shen (Brad Cooper, General Hospital) is recovering from oral surgery. Shen revealed on social media, “Removed my “Tori” (aka Torus Mandibularis” – extra bone under my tongue I’ve had all my life. In recent years have felt it was beginning to impede on my diction – so tried some tongue twisters to gauge any improvement. Experiment will continue next week when I’m fully healed.”
Torus Madiburalis is where the bony growth appears in the mandible (the bone that forms the lower jawline) on the surface closest to the tongue. Please join us in sending him healing thoughts!
