ABSTRACT
With increased awareness about dental esthetics, multidisciplinary periodontal therapy has begun to gain momentum. Management of severely attrited teeth is a challenging situation and is dealt with a multidisciplinary approach. In cases of severe tooth wear, the crown height is drastically reduced, in some cases up to the gingival level. This might require a contribution from the disciplines of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics and prosthodontics for predictable results. Herein we describe the management of one such case.

Figure 0003: Inverse bevel incisions placed

Mentions: Inverse bevel incisions were placed to reduce the bulky tissue. The flaps were extended one tooth distal of both the lower canines to permit adequate access to perform osseous surgery. Maximum preservation of keratinized gingiva was recommended. The scalloping of the flap was performed anticipating the final underlying osseous contour. A full-thickness flap was reflected up to the mucogingival junction and split apically [Figures 3 and 4].
