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.
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.
