DELGADO PICHEL, A.; INAREJOS MONTESINOS, P.  y  HERRERO CLIMENT, M.. Espacio biológico: Parte I: La inserción diente-encía. Avances en Periodoncia [online]. 2001, vol.13, n.2, pp.101-108. ISSN 2340-3209.

Biological width is known as the dentogingival unit formed by the junction of the epithelium and the connective tissue attachement. Biological width does not only refer to the length of the gingival insertion, but also to the gingival thickness, the type of periodontal tissues and the depth of the gingival sulcus, because all these components are part of a unit and should be considered as such. Another factor to be considered is the dimensional range of the epithelial and connective tissue components between individuals and in a given individual. Once the dentogingival unit is invaded, different clinical processes can take place regarding the host response to periodontal disease among other different factors that we will expose. In the event that the biological width has been invaded, and symptoms have appeared, what can be done? At the end and in a nutshell, the reader will find a brief introduction to the different treatment options available for these patients.

Palabras clave : Width biological; periodontal biotype.
