Gingival Zenith as a Reference for Bonding Braces

Orthodontics for adults is the current reality of many practices since the greater accessibility of orthodontic treatment lately. The association of orthodontics with prosthetic rehabilitation is a frequent scenario and requires an adequate multidisciplinary interaction to aim not only orthodontic alignment but also the treatment of other needs. Often, orthodontic planning is one of the steps in the oral rehabilitation and the ortho-periotic interaction is present in the idealization of a harmonious smile. Thus, the techniques of orthodontic leveling should be adapted to the individuality of the patient and the proposal of oral rehabilitation. When there is a need for prosthetic finishing, gingival collage can equalize the zenith line and periodontal aesthetic. The present study aims at the elaboration of a manual to guide orthodontists in the bonding of braces using as a reference the reconstruction of an ideal gingival contour.
