Hi there,
Alveoloplasty refers to the recontouring of the alveolar process by surgical method.
THis can be detected by the CT scan looking for the sutures and the smoothened edges compared to the uncontoured areas.
Also another independent oral surgeon can examine you and tell you if the procedure was done.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
