Managing Soft Tissue Fenestrations in Bone Grafting Surgery with an Acellular Dermal Matrix: A Case Report

Eraldo L. Batista, Jr, DDS, MSc/Felipe C. Batista, DDS

PMID: 11769839

The success of bone grafting procedures depends largely on the management and integrity of the gingival flaps. Soft tissues aid in the protection of the bone graft, participate in the revascularization of the newly formed hard tissues, and play an important role in the esthetic outcome of the reconstructive phase. Acellular dermal matrix (ADM)is a material obtained from human skin and used in plastic and reconstructive surgery as an allograft. It acts as a bioactive substrate for cell attachment and proliferation. The outcome of the use of ADM as a dressing material to treat flap fenestrations in bone grafting surgery is presented.
