Dr. Robert Levine and his professional staff are well versed in the treatment of orthodontic extrusion, a crown lengthening technique in which a cosmetic outcome is desired. The dental procedure of orthodontic extrusion is used primarily where a tooth has fractured or decayed below the gum line. The professionals at The Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics ensure that the orthodontic brackets are bonded from the tooth to be treated to adjacent teeth. A minimally invasive surgical procedure is done upon completion to adjust the gum and bone level on only the tooth being treated. In total, the entire procedure may take two to four months or more to complete prior to a crown being placed. This procedure converts a three tooth procedure into a single tooth procedure, which maintains gingival symmetry and esthetics.
Orthodontic extrusion, as performed by Dr. Levine and the professionals at The Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics, is incredibly important for patients who are seeking the confidence that comes with a happy, healthy smile and gums. By adjusting the decayed or fractured tooth, the cosmetic dentists are able to provide patients with the smile they always wanted, by simply performing a minimally invasive orthodontic extrusion or orthodontic treatment.
