Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

The preparation of your mouth before the placement of a prosthesis is referred to as pre-prosthetic surgery.

Some patients require minor oral surgical procedures before receiving a partial or complete denture in order to ensure the maximum level of comfort. A denture sits on the bone ridge, so it is very important that the bone is the proper shape and size. If a tooth needs to be extracted, the underlying bone might be sharp and uneven. For the best fit of a denture, the bone might need to be smoothed or reshaped. Occasionally, excess bone may need to be removed prior to denture insertion.

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

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

I have always been very nervous and scared of going to see the dentist.I came in on December 2, 2016 to have multiple extractions done. The nurses were very nice and made me feel comfortable. Then when the Dr. Came in to perform his work he was very gentle, kind and talked to me the whole time. The best experience yet and I highly recommend to anyone! Thank you all so much and have a blessed day!

My poor 6 year old was a child of that monster dentist schrinder. She was scared beyond your imagination. The staff not only was understanding but had sympathy. They worked at her pace and at no point git upset or frustrated for it taking longer then usual. Dr. Imary was one if not the best dentist I've seen in a long time. 5 Stars all around.
