Osteomas are benign tumours of bone. They are uncommon in the jaws and usually present because of facial asymmetry or trismus. Osteomas arising from the lingual aspect of the mandibular ramus are rare and asymptomatic, usually discovered on routine radiography. We present two cases, and discuss their aetiology, presentation and management.
