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.
