Before receiving a complete or partial denture, you may require minor oral surgery to prepare your mouth. Pre-prosthetic surgery can ensure that your bone is the proper size and shape for a snug, comfortable denture fit. In some cases, you may also need to have teeth extracted to make room for the denture.
At Kansas City Dental Implants and Oral Surgery, we perform several surgeries to help prepare for a comfortably fitting denture. Depending on your specific needs, we may advise any of the following pre-prosthetic procedures:
- Bone smoothing and reshaping
- Removal of excess bone
- Bone ridge reduction
- Removal of excess gum tissue
- Exposure of impacted teeth
