The preparation of your mouth before the placement of a prosthesis is referred to as pre-prosthetic surgery.
In order to ensure the maximum level of comfort, some patients require minor oral surgical procedures before receiving a partial or complete denture.
One or more of the following procedures might need to be performed by an Oral Surgeon in order to prepare your mouth for a denture:
- Bone smoothing and reshaping
- Removal of excess bone.
- Bone ridge reduction.
- Removal of excess gum tissue.
- Exposure of impacted teeth.
We will review your particular needs with you during your appointment.
