This course provides a complete overview covering the various principles and clinical procedures needed for crown lengthening. We cover indications, contraindications, and methods of managing surrounding bone. Topics include: how to handle hard and soft tissues; proper surgical techniques; and relocation of all structures that comprise the biologic width, namely: sulcus, junctional epithelium, connective tissue fibers, and bone. Dentists who want to do some or most of their own crown extensions, or those who just want to know more about the subject, will be helped by this course. Crown extension is one of the most commonly required procedures in restorative dentistry, yet is often underutilized.
