Abstract:

Biologic width is a specific concept which reveals the dimensional relationship between epithelial attachment, sulcus depth, connective tissue attachment and alveolar crest. This natural seal is essential for maintenance for periodontal health and its violation leads to a damaged periodontium. An adequate understanding of biologic width is essential to ensure form, function and esthetics of the dentition. Violation of biologic width leads to complications like gingival inflammation and alveolar bone loss. This article discusses various methods for biologic width assessment, guidelines for margin placement and various procedures for reconstruction of biologic width around natural teeth as well as dental implants.

Keywords: Biologic width, gingival inflammation, Bone loss, Teeth.
