Why you need Pre-Prosthetic Surgery
Usually, prosthetics are expensive and patients, therefore, expect them to last a long time. To enable this, we have to ensure that your mouth conditions are appropriate for the particular prosthetic you are going for.
For one, dentures are placed on the gum line which is also called the alveolar ridge. If you had an open socket, there is a chance that this gum line has resorbed and there would be no space for the dentures.
For treatment to be possible, we can plan and do a pre-prosthetic bone grafting surgery to enable you to support the set of dentures comfortably.
Some procedures can be done to achieve a successful prosthetic surgery. Some of the most common ones contain the removal of extra gum tissue, bone grafting, and reconstruction, smoothing and shaping of the bone, sinus augmentation as well as gum and tissue grafting. Sometimes the exposure of an impacted tooth, if there be one, may also be a necessary procedure.
The procedures may be painful, but we offer sedation and anesthetic options for the patient. Depending on the nature of the procedure and whether or not the patient is needed awake, we can choose between a local or general anesthesia during treatment.
Pre-Prosthetic Surgery Effect
The procedures are usually outpatients, and we perform them in our offices after which the patient can get their desired prosthetics. Following the system, the patient may experience pain and discomfort in the mouth.
Our surgeons offer pain relievers for the pain for use in the few days after the surgery. Sometimes the surgeons also prescribe antibiotics, and these should be taken in full dose as directed by the surgeon. Our surgeons also send you home with a post-operation instruction sheet which you are expected to follow in the recovery stage for perfect results.
