Preprosthetic Surgery Munich
The term preprosthetic surgery already gives away its meaning: It encompasses all techniques of oral surgery which can be necessary before a dental prosthesis is placed. At the oral surgery clinic Dr. Butz & Partner Munich, you have access to all of this extensive repertoire. The range of options at our practice is too wide to present here in its entirety; however, you can approach our staff anytime if you have a question about specific treatment options. Our Munich oral surgeons see it as their duty to provide you with competent medical advice and treatment in each individual case.
Range of services in preprosthetic surgery Dr. Butz & Partner Munich
For an implant to fit perfectly, it is necessary to have enough bone mass for the implant to attach to. For this purpose, our oral surgery clinic offers you the full spectrum of bone augmentation. Whether only small amounts of bone material need to be built up (e.g. via sinus lift), or whether elaborate procedures have to be used for large-scale improvements: At Dr. Butz & Partner, you will receive the most efficient treatment to form the best possible basis for a fully functional and long-lasting prosthesis. Please consult the pages bone augmentation and autologous bone augmentation for more details about your options. In addition, our staff is happy to answer your questions.
Corrections of bone structure
Sharp edges or pronounced bony protrusions in the jaw can cause dentures to fit poorly and lead to painful pressure spots. Such structures can be smoothed out by our oral surgeons to ensure optimal grip and fit accuracy for every form of dental prosthesis.
Corrections of soft tissue
Surplus of or unfavourably positioned tissue can lead to a significantly worse fit of an implant in the jaw. Typical cases include the so-called flabby ridge (alveolar bone converted into connective tissue), fibroma (benign tumours caused by irritation, e.g. from an ill-fitting denture) and problematic frenula (see Frenuloplasty of Lip and Tongue). These can be repositioned or removed in our oral surgery clinic in Munich. Frequently, additional measures are taken to indirectly raise the alveolar bone by lowering surrounding soft tissue, e.g. by means of vestibuloplasty or lowering the mouth base.
Repositioning of the mandibular nerve
In cases where either an implant is placed after advanced bone loss in the lower jaw or the mandibular alveolar bone is indirectly raised, it is important to ensure the mandibular nerve remains intact and is not damaged by implants or tissue corrections. If the position of the nerve poses a risk in the context of these treatment steps, our highly qualified oral surgeons at Dr. Butz & Partner in Fünf Höfe Munich can surgically reposition the nerve.
