Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Ensure Your Dentures Fit Comfortably

Dr. Koshgerian and Dr. Shelton perform pre-prosthetic surgery for patients who are about to receive dentures or who have discomfort associated with their current dentures. Dentures sit on top of a bony ridge in the mouth. Pre-prosthetic surgery involves reshaping or smoothing this ridge so that the prosthesis will be more comfortable and secure.

This procedure can include removing excess bone or tissue, utilizing bone grafting, extracting teeth, or exposing impacted teeth. Your surgeon will discuss your personalized treatment plan based on your condition and oral health needs.

Benefits of Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre-prosthetic surgery aims to improve the lives of patients in multiple ways, including:

  • Restore the form of your smile through grafting or rebuilding the alveolar ridge.
  • Prevent sores that are caused by ill-fitting dentures.
  • Ensure that the dentures fit comfortably so you will enjoy wearing them.
