Abstract

Periodontal and restorative dentistry are mutually important facets of clinical dentistry. Today's clinicians have many treatment options at their disposal, including biotolerant restorative materials and implants, to maintain periodontal health. It is crucial for the clinician to understand the biologic principles that form the foundation for restorative reconstruction of the periodontally involved tooth. This article discusses new techniques and trends in the critical management of the restorations, particularly at the gingival margins, and explores the role of implant dentistry as an option for the restorative plan of the periodontal patient. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.
