Alveoloplasty is a dental pre-prosthetic procedure performed to smoothen or reshape the jawbone. In this procedure, the bony edges of the alveolar ridge and its surrounding structures is made smooth, redesigned or recontoured so that a well-fitting, comfortable, and esthetic dental prosthesis may be fabricated.
Alveoloplasty for Dentures
Fitting for dentures. If you're missing teeth and are being fitted for full or partial dentures, alveoloplasty may be necessary to ensure a snug fit on the gum. Bumps and ridges in the bone can cause gaps between the denture and the gum.
Healing for the Denture
The dentist will provide you with temporary immediate dentures as the gum tissue heals. Once the tissues are fully healed, the time is right to add dentures to your mouth. In general, it usually takes between six and eight weeks following the tooth extraction for dentures to be placed. However, each patient is unique.
