Removal of the fractured coronal fragment and restoration of tooth if the fracture line has not encroached into the biologic width
Complicated crown-root fractures on the other hand presents challenge to the restorative dentist for its management because of encroachment of biologic width
and its subgingival nature.
13 The lengthening procedure is indicated to provide tooth length for caries removal, restoration of the tooth with- out violating the biologic width
, restoration retention and aesthetics.
Its features provide excellent me- chanical strength, and allow the preservation of the peri-implant biologic width
integrity for optimal aesthetic result.
Periodontal and Prosthetic Aspect of Biological Width Part I: Violation of Biologic Width
The Importante of Restorative Margin Placement to the Biologic Width
and periodontal Health.
Chapters cover the harmony of face, lips and teeth, the dentogingival complex, axial crown contours, pontic to edentulous ridge relationships, biologic width
around implants, esthetic integration, healthy teeth, restorative materials, clinical cases, and intact teeth.
The phenomenon of the establishment of a zone of biologic width
(BW) is an important clinical concept in restorative dentistry and periodontics for many years.
The basic principle of surgical extrusion technique is to place the affected tooth structure in a more desired position which helps in reestablishment of biologic width
free of any invasive restorative dentistry, caries, fracture & endodontic perforation circumferentially around the tooth.
Under controlled orthodontic force, the biologic width
of gingival tissue moves with the tooth
This review gives the wide aspect of the complex question of biologic width
and represents an attempt to answer some of the demands in relation to it.
Transgingival probing was performed to establish the dimension of biologic width
prior to Surgical Crown Lengthening procedure.
