Explanation:
crest= The most coronal portion of the bone surrounding the tooth; the continuous upper ridge of bone of the alveolar process, which is usually the first bone lost as a result of periodontal disease.
sulcus=the space or crevice between the free gingiva and the tooth surface; the depth of the sulcus varies according to the state of oral hygiene, deepening to become a periodontal pocket.

Given these definitions, you can connect
the sentences just as it states:
0.5mm innerhalb des Sulcusumfangs.
I would translate circumferentially
circumferential=adj. Umfangs..., -umfang
