It is the aim of this article to present a case report involving the biopsy and subsequent histologic analysis of an acellular dermal matrix. The area of the graft in contact with the root surface did not demonstrate a histologic attachment, but was defined as fibrous tissue apposition to the root surface. In addition, the coronal portion of the graft did not appear to be revascularized or revitalized as would be expected with an autogenous soft tissue graft. Finally, no new cementum formation was seen, but displacement of the junctional epithelium was observed. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2002;22:2129.)
