Abstract:
Clinical crown lengthening is a common site-preparation procedure employed to allow a restorative procedure on a tooth with minimum tooth structure exposed in the oral cavity. In addition, it may be offered for esthetic purposes with or without additional restorative rehabilitation when there are enlarged gingival tissues and /or supportive bone on the anatomical crown of the tooth. The purpose of this webinar is to explore the differences between functional and anatomical procedures, review the different methods employed, including traditional techniques, use of lasers, orthodontic extrusion and lip repositioning. Different patient scenarios will be presented and the participants will be able to participate in the diagnosis and treatment planning phase and walked step by step in the surgical component of management.
