Abstract

Gingival augmentation surgery with soft tissue autografts long has been the standard for increasing the width of keratinized oral tissue. Acellular dermal allografts, which have been used for several years by reconstructive surgeons, are a novel technique for achieving increased gingival tissue in place of soft tissue autografts. This report describes a case of gingival augmentation via an acellular dermal allograft. Reduced morbidity from donor site grafts and increased patient acceptance, along with highly successful clinical results, are the primary advantages of this acellular dermal allograft.
