Crown lengthening, suturing


Dr. Miguel David Cevallos Lecaro, Ph.D.

The success of the oral rehabilitation is not only the result of the aesthetic outcome. The reliability of the rehabilitation depends also on the long-term stability. The prosthetic procedures require an accurate identification of the preparation margin. The periodontal tissue health should not be compromised by the final restoration. Sometimes it is necessary to prepare surgically the tooth to attain predictability and assure a long-term stability. This workshop is divided in theoretical and practical sections and will explain to you why, when and how to perform a surgical lengthening of the clinical tooth crown.
