    How Pre-Prosthetic Surgery Can Help You?

    To ensure your prosthesis fits perfectly, you may require pre-prosthetic surgery. The goal of this surgery is to improve your gum tissue, so your denture rests on a suitable base without any excess soft tissue, muscle attachments, or bony protuberances.

    At the Advanced Dental Wellness Center, we have performed countless successful pre-prosthetic surgeries. Our experienced dentists know how to prepare your mouth for dentures and improve the integrity of your jaw and teeth’s structure.

    What Is Pre-Prosthetic Surgery?

    Pre prosthetic surgery refers to a variety of procedures that are performed to prepare your mouth and teeth for dentures. Dentures sit on top of the bone ridge, so the bone needs to be smooth, and there can’t be excess gum tissue. These procedures are typically mild, low cost and are performed under local anesthesia. Common pre-prosthetic procedures include:

    • Bone smoothing 
    • Removal of excess bone
    • Bone ridge alteration
    • Removal of gum tissue

    Our dentists have extensive experience performing all of the above preprosthetic surgeries for a reasonable price and will ensure your dentures fit comfortably in your mouth.


    Who Needs Pre-Prosthetic Surgery?

    If you have excess gum tissue, excess bone, and sharp bones, then you may require pre prosthetic surgeries. Our dentists will carefully examine your jawbone, mouth, and teeth and conduct x-rays. Then they will be able to determine the exact procedures you require. Most people who require dentures do not need preprosthetic surgery.

    How Does Pre-Prosthetic Surgery Cost?

    Preprosthetic periodontal surgery cost is typically less than a few thousand dollars and is often covered by dental insurance. The price can vary significantly depending on the types of procedures you require. Book your appointment at Advanced Dental Wellness Center, and our dentists will be able to inform you of the exact price.

    Is Pre-Prosthetic Surgery Dangerous?

    Pre-prosthetic surgery is typically mild and low risk. Preprosthetic dental surgery rarely lasts for more than 1 hour and can be performed under local anesthesia. It is incredibly important that your dentures fit properly in your mouth. Ill-fitting dentures can lead to a variety of health problems, including infection, gum disease, and chronic bad breath.

    Prior to getting dentures, our experienced dentists will perform a comprehensive check of our teeth and mouth. After your initial consultation, we will be able to determine if you require preprosthetic oral surgery and what specific procedures you need.

    I did a lot of research to find a holistic dentist that worked with our insurance. My husband is very particular about what dentist he will go to. I am happy to say that he had an amazing experience at Advanced Dental Wellness. Dr. Lipovetskiy cares for the wellness of his patients above all. We highly recommend his services.
