DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0462

The goal of this study was to evaluate the long-term stability of the root coverage results obtained with an acellular dermal matrix. The mean root coverage at 12 weeks postoperative was 91.7%. The mean root coverage at the final postoperative evaluation (mean 18.6 months) was 87.0%. This difference was not statistically or clinically significant. The root coverage results obtained with an acellular dermal matrix were predictable, esthetic, and stable over time. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2002;22:156163.)
