Conventional surgical procedures designed for autogenous tissue material may not be appropriate when using acellular dermal matrix (ADM) for the treatment of gingival recessions. This article describes a new surgical technique that addresses the unique and sensitive aspects of ADM specifically to improve esthetic outcomes and gain increased clinical predictability when treating Miller Class I and II gingival recession defects. In this paper, a root coverage case is described and the specific steps and rationale for this new technique are explained. This technique has been predictable clinically, with results comparable to those achieved using autogenous tissue. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2010;30:513521.)
