Understanding the dental gingival complex is critical for predictable management of the soft tissue. Discover why some anterior crown margins become exposed while others stay stable for years. Clinical systems will be described which include: determining the cervical limitations for tooth preparation, ridge management, minimizing surgical defects following tooth extraction, surgical alteration exposing sound tooth structure, managing violations of biologic width, and esthetically managing gingival levels. A participatory component, instructed by Dr. Elizabeth Bakeman, will familiarize attendees with surgical instrumentation and various surgical approaches.
