Crown lengthening procedures may involve osseous resective therapy in addition to surgical management of soft tissue. These hard- and soft-tissue alterations may be provided in order to obtain a ferrule height and establish a biologic width. This course will utilize a plastic typodont to provide a practical exercise in exposing a maxillary premolar with a subgingival fracture. Techniques for incisions, osseous therapy, and suturing will be reviewed. Indications and contraindications to surgical exposure will be discussed.

- Utilize ostectomy and osteoplasty to achieve adequate tooth exposure
- Identify how to eliminate osseous deformities
- Apically position a flap with periosteal sutures
