Porcine-Derived Acellular Dermal Matrix for Buccal Soft Tissue Augmentation at Single Implant Sites: A 1-Year Follow-up Case Series
Stefanini, Martina / Rendon, Alexandra / Zucchelli, Giovanni
Soft tissue augmentation procedures are crucial to obtain a successful outcome in implant therapy. The aim of this case series was to describe the 1-year clinical outcomes of a porcine-derived acellular dermal matrix for buccal mucosal thickness augmentation at osseointegrated single implants with facial periimplant soft tissue deficiencies. Ten patients were included and treated with a prosthetic and surgical approach that combined a coronally advanced flap and a dermal matrix. Results showed the possibility to obtain an increase in buccal soft tissue thickness of 1.2 ± 0.18 mm at single implant sites in the esthetic area.
