What Are The Reasons For Pre-Prosthetic Surgery?
If you need dentures in Melbourne, Florida then you might also need pre-prosthetic surgery before you are fit for your dentures. Let Dr. Sedaros and his team take great care of you so your dentures will fit perfectly.
The reason behind pre-prosthetic surgery is that your mouth must be shaped a certain way for your dentures to fit properly. This surgery can prevent pain and discomfort associated with poorly fitted dentures. Your bone may need to be shaped and smoothed to prevent the dentures from rubbing on the sharp bone. Also, excess bone and gum tissue may also interfere with the fit of dentures and therefore it is removed during pre-prosthetic surgery.
One or more of the following procedures might need to be performed in order to prepare your mouth for a denture:
- Bone smoothing and reshaping
- Removal of excess bone
- Bone ridge reduction
- Removal of excess gum tissue
- Exposure of impacted teeth
