Alveoplasty

Alveoplasty ongoing

Alveoplasty in Atlanta & Lawrenceville, Georgia

Losing one or more permanent teeth due to extraction, injury, or accident can make it challenging to find comfortable and well-fitting dentures. This is because each missing tooth creates a hole in the jawbone, which can cause dentures to rub against high points, creating sore spots and an improper fit.

At Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, we know how crucial a proper denture fit is to your oral health and overall well-being. That’s why we offer alveoplasty, a dental surgery that smooths out uneven areas, flattens overly thin ridges, and prepares the jaw to receive dentures successfully.

Consult with one of our dentists today.

What is Alveoplasty?

Alveoplasty is a dental surgical procedure that reshapes the jawbone to improve denture fit and bone healing. During an alveoplasty, our skilled oral surgeons smooth out any high and low points in the jawbone, creating a more even surface for denture placement. We also taper thin ridges to ensure adequate denture support and stability. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, and patients can typically return to normal activities within a few days.

Benefits of Alveoplasty

Alveoplasty offers several benefits for patients seeking denture placement, including:

Better Denture Fit

By smoothing out the jawbone, alveoplasty helps dentures fit more comfortably and securely. This can improve speech, chewing ability, and overall quality of life.

Improved Bone Healing

Alveoplasty involves suturing tooth sockets closed, which can help control bleeding and improve healing time following multiple extractions. This is in contrast to general single tooth extractions, where the socket is left open to fill with a blood clot.

Reduced Risk of Complications

Alveoplasty is a safe and effective procedure when performed by a skilled oral surgeon. By ensuring a proper fit for dentures, alveoplasty reduces the risk of complications such as sores, inflammation, and infection.

Is Alveoplasty Right for You?

If you’ve lost one or more permanent teeth and are struggling to find comfortable and well-fitting dentures, alveoplasty may be the solution you need. At Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, we recommend alveoplasty for those who have uneven areas or overly thin ridges in their jawbone, which can cause dentures to rub against high points, create sore spots, and fit poorly. We also suggest alveoplasty for patients who are preparing to receive dentures, as it can enhance the fit of dentures and speed up healing time following multiple extractions.

Our team of skilled dental professionals will assess your oral health and determine if alveoplasty is the right option for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule a consultation and learn more about how alveoplasty can improve your oral health and quality of life.
