The preparation of your mouth before the placement of your prosthesis (denture) is referred to as pre-prosthetic surgery.

If a tooth is extracted before your denture is placed, the underlying bone might be sharp and uneven. For the best fit of your denture, the bone might need to be smoothed or reshaped (alveloplasty).
