Gingival Displacements Options in Prosthodontics: A Critical Review on Recent Advances

D K Singh, P Gupta, A Bhatnagar

Abstract


A plethora of innovations have taken place in impression-making for fixed prosthesis, all with a singular objective to record the finish margins of tooth preparation and the gingival tissues. The gingival displacement temporarily displaces the tissues laterally to adequately record the sub-gingival margins. The purpose of this review is to make an appraisal of the latest advancements in the field of tissue-displacement and analyze their merits and demerits. A conscientious dentist is one with lucid comprehension of concepts, a keen discerning eye on recent developments, well-informed choice of treatment plan, and impeccable execution of the chosen plan.
