ABSTRACT
Modern dentistry is based on a comprehensive approach to treatment. In order to achieve a satisfactory functional and aesthetic effect, interdisciplinary care involving several specialists is often required. The article presents the periodontal and prosthetic treatment of a 48-year-old patient, in whom previously made prosthetic restorations compromised the biological width and led to recurrent gingivitis. Due to the complexity of the issue, interdisciplinary multi-stage treatment was necessary. Thus a simple and predictable way to reconstruct proper relations within the dento-gingival complex using a specially designed surgical template is presented. The achieved aesthetic effect fully satisfied both the patient and the dental team.
