Crown Lengthening and Crown-to-Root Ratio

Crown lengthening is often performed when a large portion of a tooth is damaged and requires some prosthetics to protect the remaining part. The surgery will remove gum tissue and possibly alveolar bone, making it possible to place a crown or a dental implant. When the surgery is performed, the periodontist or the dental surgeon will have to consider the crown to root ratio and inform the patient about the changes that will be performed (and how these will affect future oral health).
