Oral Surgery Before Dentures Salem OR

Dr Swiderski Explains Pre-Denture Surgery

Some patients require minor oral surgical procedures before receiving a partial or complete denture, in order to ensure the maximum level of comfort. A denture sits on the bone ridge, so it is very important that the bone is the proper shape and size. If a tooth needs to be extracted, the underlying bone might be left sharp and uneven. For the best fit of a denture, the bone might need to be smoothed out or reshaped. Occasionally, excess bone would need to be removed prior to denture insertion.

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
  • Removal of excess gum tissue
  • Exposure of impacted teeth

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

Patient Testimonial

Have to admit, I was a bit nervous. I didn't want to be completely out for the procedure, so they suggested they use the "laughing gas" along with the numbing injections. Had one tooth pulled and two implants inserted into my jaw. I was aware of everything that was done, but felt no pain whatsoever. Dr. Swiderski and his staff were wonderful.
