    Nowadays, most countries in the world have encountered an aging society, which is in part due to the improvement of public health.
    The elderly population has increased and more opportunities and demands to treat teeth have been gained.
    Since permanent dentition is usually complete at the age of 12, the longer one lives, the more dental problems tend to occur, and in fact, the incidence/prevalence of periodontitis has been increasing around the world.

    In recent decades, periodontal surgical procedures have advanced owing to the abundance of updates, development of periodontal surgical techniques and clinical evidence for periodontal health.
    This has enabled the preservation and continued function of teeth affected by severe periodontitis, deep caries lesions, or horizontal root fracture, which would have been otherwise difficult to save.
    The prognosis and actual outcome of teeth has improved with the development of various periodontal treatments, however, the ability to determine appropriate surgical techniques and management of periodontal phenotype on a case-by-case basis is required.

    This presentation will cover key essentials regarding the periodontal phenotype and review modern surgical crown lengthening (SCL) procedures, which is one of the representative periodontal surgeries for tooth preservation.
    In addition, the functional SCL procedure and fundamentals for achieving esthetic outcome will be introduced.
