The Oral & Maxillofacial preparations before placement of a prosthesis is referred to as pre-prosthetic surgery.
Dr Kemal Akbiyik offers minor oral surgical procedures for pre-prosthetic surgery. For example, A denture sits on bone ridge which means it is extremely important that the bone is the proper shape and size. For best prosthetic fits bones may need to be smoothed out or reshaped. Sometimes, excess bone will need to be removed prior to denture insertion.
At Brisbane Maxillofacial Surgery Dr Akbiyik can provide the following pre-prosthetic surgeries:
- exposure of impacted teeth
- removal of excess bone
- bone ridge reduction
- bone smoothing and reshaping
