Restoration of the teeth and the periodontium share an inseparable relationship. Biologic Width is the dimension of space that the healthy gingival tissues occupy above the alveolar bone. Incorrectly placed margins of restorations are a common cause of biologic width violation. This can lead to gingival inflammation and bone loss, thereby damaging the periodontal health as well as reducing the life of the restoration. Respecting the biologic width and designing restorations accordingly is crucial. This review aims to cover the significance of biologic width in Periodontics and Implant therapy.
