Event Overview
Welcome message:

Functional Crown Lengthening Surgery - For Improved And Predictable Restorative Outcomes is organized by Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC and would be held on Sep 16, 2017 at Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, Los Angeles, California, United States Of America. The Target Audience for this medical event is basically for Dentists. This CME conference has been approved with 7 Continuing Education Credits.

Subgingival caries and tooth fractures are common occurrences in clinical practice. They typically lead to difficulties in managing the restorative finish line and an inability to make proper impressions. In other situations, dentists face difficulties obtaining adequate crown retention and a ferrule effect. These can lead to secondary caries, repeated fractures and periodontal complications due to biologic width impingement. This course is designed to assist clinicians with managing these challenges and will explore the periodontal-restorative interface.

Participants will learn about functional crown lengthening and its indications prior to restorative treatment. It will review the surgical techniques and how to improve restorative results by incorporating periodontal principles. The hands-on portion will enable participants to practice surgical crown lengthening including effective flap design and suturing techniques.
