ARDILA MEDINA, C.M.. Clinical application of acellular dermal matrix to prevent gingival recessions. Avances en Periodoncia [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.1, pp.27-34. ISSN 1699-6585.
The ultimate goal of periodontal surgery is the coverage of exposed root surface when this condition causes the patient esthetic troubles, dentinal hipersentivity, or root caries or when it hampers proper plaque removal. Many surgical techniques have been proposed for the correction of dental root exposition: free gingival grafts, pedicle soft tissue grafts and bilaminar techniques. Guided tissue regeneration has also been proposed as a possible therapeutic alternative in the management of gingival recession. Recently, an acellular dermal matrix allograft (ADMA) has been reported to have a favorable clinical outcome in coverage of gingival recessions. The objective of this review is to show composition, qualitys, trajectory and mainly predictable of the acellular dermal matrix allograft to compare with others techniques to cover gingival recessions.
