Pre-Prosthetic Surgery for Dentures
Pre-prosthetic surgery is performed to prepare the jawbone for a partial or complete denture. Dentures rest on the jawbone ridge, which makes it imperative that the ridge is smooth for a comfortable fit. Oral surgeons at the Center for Oral Facial & Implant Surgery offer a variety of pre-prosthetic procedures by removing excess bone and sharp or uneven edges to enhance our patients’ experiences with dentures.
- Bone ridge reduction
- Removal of excess bone to smooth and reshape the bone ridge
- Exposure of Impacted teeth
- Bone grafting
- Removal of excess gum
These procedures are relatively simple, and very comfortable. Please call our office today at Chattanooga Office Phone Number (423) 893-3333 for more information about our pre-prosthetic services.
