VESTIBULOPLASTY AND ALVEOLOPLASTY
There are times when elderly patients with all teeth lost report to the doctor with the complaint that there lower denture usually get dislodged while eating or the denture is not stable during eating and speaking. Usually the persons who wear dentures notice that, over time, the appliances becomes looser and looser and may require relining of the denture plate or undergo refitting for new dentures.
Generally as the age advances the bones of the jaw undergo resorption and the tissue covering the bone also get diminished. In these cases, due to continuous loss of height and width of the bone and surrounding tissue the denture support and stability is lost and patient may require an additional procedure called as vestibuloplasty before making of new denture.
Vestibuloplasty refers to surgical modification of the oral cavity in which the height and width of the bone and gum region is increase in preparation for dentures or oral implants. The extent of the surgery varies, depending on the amount of bone loss incurred and the size of the surface area requiring reconstruction.
Similarly alveoloplasty is a surgical procedure in which the jaws are prepared before the denture is made. In Alveoloplasty, the irregularities present over the bony rigde are removed so that it does not produce any problem like ulcers or irritation after the denture is made.
