Gentle restorative dentistry

Surgical crown extension

Modern dentistry is putting increasing emphasis on tooth preservation. The use of modern restorative techniques enables dentists to repair ever greater tooth damage.

In many cases, this changes the natural geometry of the periodontium, which may result in significant inflammatory reactions.

A biological width, i.e. the smallest distance between the jaw bone and gingival margin, which is too short frequently causes problems. In the patient, too short a biological width generally leads to chronic inflammation of the bone: The body reacts to the changed geometry and tries to break down the bone to restore biological width.

Biological width is restored by surgical crown extension – ideally before the unavoidable inflammatory reaction. Even chronic inflammation that has lasted for years may heal completely afterwards.

At Perioplant Excellence, we have perfected our techniques over a number of years and see ourselves as the go-to partner for your periodontal surgery.
