MDDS Presents: HANDS-ON User-friendly Crown Lengthening Procedures to Enhance Excellent Restorative Dentistry
October 7 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
HANDS-ON User-friendly Crown Lengthening Procedures to Enhance Excellent Restorative Dentistry
Presented by Dr. Sam Low
Subgingival margin placement can be a challenge for the restorative dentist, including patient satisfaction with esthetic appearance. We overcome the limitations by gaining the confidence to provide an array of straightforward surgical procedures with patient comfort and acceptance as a priority.
In this hands-on workshop, you will experience manipulation of gingival and bony margins to obtain satisfying restorative results with defining end points and creating essential biologic width. You will incorporate all techniques from traditional flaps to today’s micro-invasive dental lasers. Billing and coding are reviewed to ensure effective reimbursement with case acceptance.
- Collect data to determine case selection and choose appropriate surgical techniques
- Define anatomical limitations of surgical restorative access
- Recognize case selection and choose surgical flap/laser techniques to achieve restorative access including flap manipulation, closed laser and suturing methodologies
- Investigate laser utilization including wavelengths and respective techniques
- Review indications for mucogingival augmentation including attached gingivae and ridge anatomy
- Develop post-operative evaluation protocols assessing wound healing and complications
Note: If attendees would like to use their own diode lasers during the course, they may bring the laser, along with safety glasses and tips. Lasers will be provided by BIOLASE.

MWDI Parking Information
For your convenience, we have free parking in two retail garages within the Beauvallon building (east-facing side). Both garages are accessed from Lincoln Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. Parking in these garages is available on a first-come, first-served basis. **If you are attending a large course/event at the MWDI, we recommend arriving early in case the garages fill and alternative parking must be secured. Be aware – the garages come up quickly after you cross 9th Avenue and both have left lane entrances. All numbered spaces within both retail parking garages (without “Reserved” signs) are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Do not park in any spaces with a red sign that says “Matrix” or “KCNC.” Do not park in the residential parking. Residential garages are at the back of the retail garages. The north and south garages are not connected. Both have open parking available. See link for more information.
