Abstract

The aim of this case series was to evaluate clinical and patient-centered outcomes when treating multiple recessions (Miller Class I, II, and III) affecting five or more teeth in a single procedure using acellular dermal matrix in 18 eligible participants (mean of 7.4 ± 1.7 recessions/patient). Low mean visual analog scale pain scores (0.7 ± 0.8) and analgesic consumption (2.3 ± 2.5 tablets) were reported from days 0 to 6 postoperatively. Mean baseline recession depth was 2.1 ± 1 mm. At 1 year postsurgery, mean percent root coverage was 87.1% ± 18.3%, and complete root coverage was achieved in 61.7% of recessions with statistically significant differences between smokers and nonsmokers.
