The relationship between periodontal health & the restoration of teeth is intimate & inseparable. For restorations to survive long term,
the periodontium must remain healthy so that the teeth are maintained. For the periodontium to remain healthy, restorations must be
critically managed in several areas so that they are in harmony with their surrounding periodontal tissues. To maintain or enhance the
patient’s esthetic appearance, the tooth/tissue interface must present a healthy natural appearance, with gingival tissue framing the
restored teeth in a harmonious manner.
The primary cause of gingival inflammation is bacterial plaque, along with other predisposing factors. The primary objective of
periodontal therapy is the correction of anatomic morphologic defects that may favor plaque accumulation and/ or impair esthetics.
