Can an Oral Surgeon Help Your Dentures Fit Better?


Posted on 5/13/2018 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Dentures Palisades Surgical Arts CA 90272Losing a tooth is something that does not only affect your oral health, but most of all your self-confidence. The moment you lose your tooth or a set of teeth, your speech becomes affected, sometimes making you sound funny when you talk.

The same goes for eating because you are not able to chew your food properly.
The solution for teeth loss is dentures. Getting dentures will restore the dental function you lost like chewing, biting, and of course the aesthetic function of smiling.

Loose Or Poor Fitting Dentures

The normal way you can get fitted for dentures is by getting an impression of the tooth or teeth you have lost. However, even with impressions of your teeth, it is still possible for you to get a poor fitting denture. It is possible for a poor fitting denture to move whenever you eat and sometimes even fall out.

They do not have stability and may even cause irritation to your gums because it rubs against them. You may wonder now what is a better alternative to this, or if there is some way to make dentures fit well somehow. Do not worry, because oral surgeons can help in making your dentures fit better.

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre-prosthetic surgery is done so that your mouth will be prepared for the positioning of a denture. Some cases do require minor oral surgery before they can be fitted with dentures.

Just like your teeth, dentures are placed on the bone ridge, which is why it is vital to have the correct bone size and shape. There are a number of procedures that need to be done in order to prepare your mouth for denture placement, such as the removal of excess bone, bone reshaping, bone smoothing, even removal of excess gums.

If you believe you have a poor fitting denture that you need to be fixed, or if you feel it is high time to replace the tooth/teeth you lost, do not hesitate to contact us because we are more than willing to help you.
