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 and to obtain the best functional and aesthetic results, some patients may require some oral surgical procedures before receiving their final restorations . For example, a denture sits on the bone ridge, so it is very important that the bone be the proper shape and size. If a tooth needs to be extracted, the underlying bone might be left sharp and uneven. For the best fit of a denture, the bone might need to be smoothed out or reshaped. Occasionally, excess bone would need to be removed prior to denture insertion. Another example would be pre-prosthetic surgeries needed prior to the fabrication of crowns and veneers. In these cases, pre-prosthetic surgeries help to recreate a symmetrical and naturally looking smile, enhancing the tooth ”gums” ratio.

One or more of the following procedures might need to be performed in order to prepare your mouth for your new restorations:

  • Bone smoothing and reshaping
  • Removal of excess bone.
  • Bone ridge reduction.
  • Removal of excess gum tissue.
  • Exposure of impacted teeth.
Some of these procedures are minor surgeries and can be performed in our facility. The more complex ones will be referred to either an Oral Surgeon or a Periodontist.

We will review your particular needs with you during your appointment.
