Laser Preparation Technique in Vestibuloplasty: A Case Report

Andreas Beer/Franziska Beer

Buccal vestibuloplasty of the maxilla was performed in 10 patients with a CO2 laser in order to increase the relative height of the alveolar ridge, first to improve the retention of a modified provisional denture and then, after three weeks, of the new full denture. The observation period was 6 to 10 months. The aim of this case report is to show that in very compromised alveolar ridge situations, buccal vestibuloplasty of the maxilla yields stable prosthetic and esthetic results with excellent denture wearing comfort and low risks for the patient.
