The use of acellular dermal matrix to correct soft and hard tissue defects involving implants is described through three case reports. Correction of a ridge deformity caused by a root fracture, submerging of an existing implant and correction of recession defects around adjacent teeth, and ridge preservation for implant placement are presented. The use of acellular dermal matrix prevented the need for a second surgical site for donor material and the possible attendant postoperative complications. It also enhanced patient comfort and satisfaction with the procedure. All three cases demonstrated excellent functional and esthetic results for both the patients and professionals involved in the therapy. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2004;24:352361.)
