Question
i am having extractions for all upper and lower teeth, with full denture insertion, my question is, what is alveo per quad w/ext?, i am being charged for 4 of them

Answer
I am sorry they did not explain this to you Ruth.  it is shaping of the bone to make the denture fit better.  When the teeth are removed sharp edges are left and we smooth these down and also do some one reshaping to make the denture go in easier and adhere better.  Thanks so much for a great question.
