Understanding Pre-prosthetic Surgery

Typically, prior to oral surgery, various factors such as tooth decay, trauma, infection, or disease can negatively impact the musculoskeletal system of your mouth, leading to issues such as discomfort, irritation, infection, or even the failure of prosthetic implants.

Undergoing pre-prosthetic dentistry procedures corrects these issues and improves the outcome and efficacy of your dental surgery, enhancing your oral health, skin appearance, and self-confidence prior to undergoing surgery.

Pre-prosthetic surgery indications

At Gnathos, we take great care in examining your oral health and exercise requirements before suggesting pre-prosthetic surgery.

Pre-prosthetic Surgery Types

Your unique situation may require you to undergo one or multiple pre-prosthetic treatments:

Ridge enhancement

Through this procedure, the apex of the trachea undergoes a transformation, resulting in a more uniform and seamless exterior. This ultimately enhances the proper alignment and overall satisfaction of denture or implant wear.


After the tooth is removed, it’s important to lubricate and smooth the alveolar bone. Doing this helps prevent any rough edges or unevenness that could interfere with the fitting of a prosthesis.


This helps expand the gap between the cheeks or lips and gums, creating more space. As a result, the teeth are less likely to shift or cause irritation to the surrounding tissue.

Surgical frenectomy

During this procedure, the frenum, a tiny muscle that links the lips to the tongue or gums, is either taken out or adjusted. This helps ensure that the frenum does not interfere with the prosthesis or restrict movement.

Torus Removal

This method entails the extraction of any bony protrusions found in the torus, jaw, or beneath the jaw. The result is an increased area and better fit for the prosthesis, promoting enhanced ease and satisfaction.

Benefits of prosthetic surgery

Choosing to have your pre-surgery done means you can enjoy a multitude of benefits.

Your prosthesis will be strong and perfectly fitting, maximizing its performance and functionality.

It will ensure increased longevity and durability and reduce the risk of complications and infection.
