Pre-Prosthetic Surgery Dentist in Las Vegas, NV
Before dental prosthetics can be fixed, routine procedures are often required beforehand, which are called pre-prosthetic operations. These types of procedures can include the reshaping of bone, the smoothening or flattening of the bone, or other operations that help to best prepare the jawbone for dentures or dental implants.
Procedures that may be performed before a dental appliance can be placed include:
- Smoothing of the bone or reshaping
- The removing of excess bone material
- Reshaping the bone ridge
- Reshaping of the gums
Our team at Las Vegas Oral Surgery can help dental implant, bridge, and denture patients determine what their pre-prosthetic needs are to help them gain the best possible results from their dental prosthetics.
