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 consult appointment.

My twin girls were nervous but Dr. Turley and staff were so kind and very informative and they did great after the procedure. Especially if ice cream is involve and out of school for a week. But all in seriousness, highly recommend. Thanks for taking great care of my twins.

My wife had her wisdom teeth removed a couple months ago. Everyone in the office went above and beyond to make her comfortable. She and I were both pleased with their service and will defiantly recommend North Coast Oral Surgery to our family and friends. Dr. Turley explained and answered all of our questions.
