Pre Prosthetic Surgery
When is pre prosthetic surgery necessary?
The treatment of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth in preparation for complete or partial dentures is known as pre-prosthetic surgery. Proper contouring of the jaws following dental extractions is critical for a well fitting denture. Over time our edentulous jaws naturally resorb potentially leaving us with inadequate bone to support a denture. There are many treatment options other than implants that can enhance the fabrication and comfort of dentures by optimizing the shape of the bone.
