Is removal of the torus palatinus routine?

I have just started the procedure for full mouth dentures. The bottom will be done first and will involve teeth extractions, healing, jaw bone planing, eventual bone grafting, followed by 4 implants and the denture. Work will them begin on the upper jaw.
Although my top jaw is in far better 'shape' than the lower jaw,
I have a torus palatinus which I am told will have to be removed in order to allow the top denture to fit properly. Is removal of the torus palatinus routine? I trust my provider, but after reading a bit online, I'm wondering if I should seek a second opinion on the torus palatinus removal?
Thank you for considering my question.
