Extractions & Reshaping For Dentures

When a denture is made, it relies on the tissue and bone for support. After teeth are extracted, sometimes the bone is uneven and has sharp areas. By smoothing these areas, the denture is more comfortable to wear and easier to adjust to. There are also times that there is too much bone present and the denture cannot fit over the ridge. In these cases, bone is also removed to allow for a better fitting and more comfortable denture.
