MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

The goal of pre-prosthetic and reconstructive surgery is to establish a functional biologic platform for supportive or retentive mechanisms that will maintain or support prosthetic full mouth rehabilitation without contributing to further bone or tissue loss. The dental office Miami practice of Dr. Tal Morr announces new and improved pre-prosthetic surgery to condition the mouth for denture placement.

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

Pre-prosthetic surgery is an oral and maxillofacial procedure to prepare the mouth before Dr. Tal Morr inserts partial or complete dentures. Common problems that are dealt with during pre-prosthetic surgery include: Exostosis—A developmental bulge of normal bone on the cheek side of the teeth that may interfere with the seating of prosthesis; mandibular torus—An exostosis that typically is found along the gum line on the tongue side of the teeth in the area of the premolar teeth; palatal torus—An exostosis that is found on the roof of the mouth; and epulus—excessive thickening of the gum tissue that can develop under a chronically ill-fitting denture (this tissue is typically inflamed and painful.)

The goal of these procedures is to maximize the fit and comfort of the prosthesis. Adjustments of the prosthesis may be required after surgery. During a pre-prosthetic surgical procedure performed by the best dentist Miami has to offer, Dr. Tal Morr, the following procedures may be performed: Bone smoothing and reshaping, removal of excess bone, bone ridge reduction, removal of excess gum tissue, and exposure of impacted teeth.
