Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Following the loss of the natural dentition, important changes and remodeling of the jaw bones are initiated. Resulting uneven or mobile gums can render dental prosthesis (dentures) unstable and uncomfortable.

Pre-prosthetic surgery encompasses a number of minor procedures aimed at correcting hard and soft tissue irregularities prior to prosthetic replacement. Once performed these procedures usually optimize prosthetic comfort and stability.
