    I’m new here and this is my first post. Recently I had met an accident and got fractured my left leg and have some mild injuries in my forehead as well. Actually, the accident was not that serious, but the sad truth is that I had lost my front tooth and also my root canal tooth has cracked. And my dentist in High Park told me that the tooth cracked below the gum line and to avoid unnecessary complications, he suggested me to get a crown lengthening and root canal treatment. I don’t know anything about this procedure and while searching for this procedure, I happened to read that this procedure is performed by cutting the gum. Is it true? Is it really safe to get such treatment? Will it hurt? How much time will it take for a complete healing?

    Crown lengthening and root canal both are safe procedure. You don’t need to worry about and I agree with the your dentist recommendation. Basically in crown lengthening, your periodontist corrects the overgrowth of the gum tissues that cover the teeth so that teeth look more attractive and elongated.
