Alveoloplasty

 

Sometimes following an extraction after the gum tissues heal, the underlying bone can present irregularities, which may protrude in the gum tissue causing tenderness. If left untreated and a full or partial denture is fabricated, severe discomfort may arise along with instability or even a reduction of retention for the dentures.

Alveoloplasty is the surgical shaping of the dental bone after extraction of several teeth in preparation for dentures.


Procedure:

Appointment 1: Anesthetize the area to be worked on. Elevate the gum tissue to access the bone. Removal of all excess bone fragments is completed. Place the tissues back in place with stitches.

Appointment 2: Post op check 1 week later for suture removal
