“Thinking Outside the Palate”
Learning to treat recession with acellular dermis grafting can be a valuable addition to your practice skill set!

This surgical technique is simpler and faster than difficult, tedious TUNNELING AND PIN-HOLE techniques. Most soft tissue grafting for recession can now be donewithout any palate surgery. Acellular dermis is as effective as connective tissue or free gingival grafts when used with a simplified technique that eliminates tedious tunneling.

Acellular dermis is an effective barrier membrane when used in socket management for guided bone regeneration. This sets the stage for rapid bone graft maturation and accurate implant placement. Acellular dermis generates new, wider attachment and keratinized gingiva around implants. Acellular dermis can be used to cover cervical caries lesions, avoiding class V restorations. Platelet-rich growth factors and Emdogain accelerate soft tissue healing, and will increase keratinized tissue plus predictable root surface reattachment.
