Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

This is the process of preparing the mouth for the placement of a partial or complete denture, ensuring a comfortable fit. Because dentures rest on a bone ridge, it is very important that the bone is the proper shape and size. To ensure proper fit of the denture, the bone may need to be smoothed or reshaped. Occasionally, excess bone must be removed or recontoured before the denture is inserted.​​​​​​​
