Multiple Teeth Covered by a Large Alloderm Graft

Our patient had a full quadrant of significant gum recession and he wanted to treat the entire area in one visit. We completed his gingival graft with acellular dermal matrix, which avoided multiple treatment visits and repeated harvesting of connective tissue from his palate. Although utilizing the patient’s own gum tissue is the gold standard for gingival augmentation, synthetic tissue is a suitable alternative when larger spans require treatment and the patient has time constraints. We were still able to achieve significant coverage of his exposed roots.
