Crown lengthening procedures may involve osseous resective therapy in addition to surgical management of soft tissue. These hard and soft tissue alterations may be provided in order to obtain a ferrule height and establish a biologic width. This course will utilize a plastic typodont to provide a practical exercise in exposing a maxillary premolar with a subgingival fracture. Techniques for incisions, osseous therapy and suturing will be reviewed. Indications and contraindications to surgical exposure will be discussed.
1) Design a flap for a crown lengthening surgical procedure.
2) Utilize ostectomy and osteoplasty to achieve adequate tooth exposure.
3) Eliminate osseous deformities.
4) Apically position a flap with periosteal sutures.
5) Recognize when crown lengthening is contraindicated.
