Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Whether it is dentures, partials, bridges or dental implants, many people at some point in their lives will need some kind of dental prosthetic. When that happens, the mouth needs to be prepared for the prosthetic in some way, depending on the kind of prosthetic, its placement location and other factors. When getting dentures, for example, some patients may experience difficulties with keeping dentures in place and functioning properly, due to the size or shape of the jaws, gum problems, or the muscular structure of the mouth. This is when pre-prosthetic surgery can be especially helpful – by alleviating or eliminating these problems, patients can wear their dental prostheses with greater ease and success, increasing oral health and quality of life.
