In my mind, the benchmark of excellence in restorative dentistry is the management of restorative margins. The proper interface between artificial materials and the living host tissue is critical to the long-term survival of the restoration we place. The exactness of a marginal seal, i.e. the fit and finish of materials used, is but one aspect. A second overarching aspect is the placement of that margin in relation to the Biological Width…that delicate complex of tissue that forms around each tooth and implant to seal off the “inside world” from the microbes that inhabit the oral cavity. The tissue complex around implant vs. tooth may be different, but one truth remains constant…that complex must not be violated. This presentation concerns itself with a comprehensive case to illustrate criteria and techniques used to attain that elusive perfect margin.
