Crown Lengthening Workshop

April 24, 2020
1:00 pm โ€“ 4:30 pm
  • Timothy Hempton, D.D.S.

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.

Learning Objectives:
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.

Course Number: F11
