Pre-prosthetic surgery

When dentures are the next step in dental care for a patient, a dentist may suggest a patient get a minor oral procedure beforehand – a pre-prosthetic surgery – to ensure comfortability. Dentures sit directly on the bone ridge, making their shape and size of the utmost importance.

What procedures does pre-prosthetic surgery include?

  • Bone smoothing and reshaping
  • Bone ridge reduction
  • Exposure of impacted teeth
  • Removal of excess gum tissue
  • Removal of excess bone

Who needs pre-prosthetic surgery?

Determining who needs pre-prosthetic surgery is a case-by-case situation. Your dentist will evaluate your specific scenario and inform you of the next step. There is a possibility that a patient does not require pre-prosthetic surgery before full or partial dentures.

If you are interested in full or partial dentures, or simply have inquiries regarding pre-prosthetic procedures, contact our experienced staff at Country Isles Dental.
