Pyogenic granuloma secondary to
biological width issues
We know from literature that the biologic
width needs to be 3 to 4 millimeters from the crown
margin to the bone crest. If the biological width is
encroached, an inflammatory response occurs similar to
bacteria induced periodontal disease. See what can
develop when biological width encroachment occurs.
