Alargamiento de corona

Why would I need crown lengthening?

El alargamiento de corona is usually performed to improve the health of the gum tissue, prepare the mouth for a procedure, o corregir un “gummy smile”. Una & ldquo; sonrisa gingival” se utiliza para describir un caso en el que los dientes están cubiertos con exceso de tejido de las encías, lo que resulta en una sonrisa menos agradable desde el punto de vista estético. El procedimiento implica remodelar o remodelar el tejido de la encía y el hueso alrededor del diente en cuestión para crear una nueva encía.–relación de dientes. Crown lengthening can be performed on a single tooth, many teeth, or the entire gum line.

Crown lengthening is often required when your tooth needs a new crown or other restoration. The edge of that restoration is deep below the gum tissue and not immediately accessible. It is also usually too close to the bone or below the bone.

Crown lengthening allows us to reach the edge of the restoration, ensuring a proper fit to the tooth. It should also provide enough tooth structure so the new restoration will not come loose in the future. This allows you to clean the edge of the restoration when you brush and floss to prevent decay and gum disease.

About the Crown Lengthening Procedure

Crown lengthening takes approximately one hour but will largely depend on the amount of teeth involved and if any amount of bone will need to be removed. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthetic and involves a series of small incisions around the tissue to separate the gums from the teeth. Even if only one tooth requires the procedure, it will probably be necessary to adjust the surrounding teeth to enable a more even reshaping. En algunos casos, extraction of a small amount of bone will be necessary as well.

When Dr. McKenzie, Dr. Liszka, Dr. Coughlin, Dr. Myer o Dr. Pífano is satisfied that the teeth have sufficient exposure and the procedure is completed, the incisions will be cleaned with sterile water. Sutures and a protective bandage are then placed to help secure the new gum-to-tooth relationship. Your teeth will look noticeably longer immediately after surgery because the gums have now been repositioned. You will need to be seen in one or two weeks to remove the sutures and evaluate your healing. The surgical site should be completely healed in approximately two to three months following the procedure.
