Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

The process of preparing your mouth before the placement of prosthesis is known as pre-prosthetic surgery. In some cases, you may need minor oral procedures before receiving a partial or complete denture. This ensures you experience the maximum level of comfort.

From removing your excess bone to exposing impacted teeth, you can trust our qualified surgeon to provide you with the ultimate pre-prosthetic care.

Before dentures are placed

A denture sits on the bone ridge. This makes it important that every bone is in the proper shape and size. When a tooth is in need of extraction it may leave the underlying bone sharp or uneven. For the best fit of a denture, your bone may need to be smoothed out or reshaped.

  • Bone smoothing
  • Bone reshaping
  • Bone ridge reduction
  • Excess gum tissue removal
  • Impacted teeth exposure
