The interrelationship between periodontics and prosthetics has been widely discussed by dentists. A healthy and stable periodontal condition is a necessary prerequisite for the success and long-term stability of prosthetic therapy and should be paid close attention to before, during, and after prosthetic therapy. At the same time, soft and hard tissue defects, aesthetic problems, and tooth loss related to periodontal issue need to be solved by prosthetic therapy. Periodontal considerations in prosthetic dentistry are of great clinical significance. Therefore, this paper will discuss the periodontal preparation and health maintenance before, during, and after prosthetic treatment, the influence of prosthetic treatment on periodontal health, and the relationship between periodontics and implantology to provide basis for clinical work of dentists.

Key words: periodontal health, prosthetic therapy, crown lengthening procedure, periodontal soft and hard tissue defects, periodontics and implantology, peri-implantitis
