Occasionally there may be disease conditions that interfere with comfortable denture wearing. These must be addressed before a denture is constructed. One or more of the following procedures might need to be performed in order to prepare your mouth for a denture:

  • Bone smoothing and reshaping
  • Removal of excess bone
  • Bone ridge reduction
  • Inferior alveolar and mental nerve repositioning
  • Removal of excess gum tissue
  • Exposure of impacted teeth

We will review your particular needs with you during your appointment.
