What Is Alveoloplasty?

Alveoloplasty is a surgical procedure performed by dentists to reshape and smooth the jawbone (alveolar) ridge after tooth extractions or in preparation for denture placement. Our dentists, Dr. Ken and Dr. Powell, skillfully perform this procedure to ensure that patients have a proper foundation for dentures or other dental prosthetics, enhancing comfort and fit. This procedure is often necessary when irregularities in the jawbone can lead to complications with denture fitting or the healing process after tooth removal.

Benefits of Alveoloplasty

Alveoloplasty provides several key benefits, including the preparation of a smooth, stable jawbone surface for dentures or implants, improved comfort and functionality of dental prosthetics and reduction in the risk of irritation or infection in the mouth. By creating a more uniform ridge, we help patients achieve better outcomes with their dentures or implants, ensuring a more natural look and feel.
