Pre-Prosthetic Surgery in Midtown NYC
What is Pre-Prosthetic Surgery?
- The preparation of your mouth before the placement of a prosthesis (such as dentures) 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.
