The meaning of the ‘Preprosthetic Surgery’ is preparation of the oral soft and hard tissues for denture construction.

Prostodonties aims to restore the functional and esthetic portions of the gnathologic system that have been lost or are concenitally absent. Since denture can be no better than its foundation of basilar bone with proper tissue cover, it is axiomatic that every effort should be made by the dentist to prepare, improve, preserve and reconstruct the jaws for prolonged denture wearing.

Many dentures that are warn with discomfort, annoyance and embarressment could be made comfortably junctional if surgical alterations were accomplish to improve denture wearing.
