Abstract:

On mixed breed dogs it was demonstrated that vestibuloplasty with full and split thickness buccal mucosal grafts could be successfully accomplished immediately at the time of mandibular extractions with alveoplasty. In another study it was shown that the local injection of triamcinolone acetonide adjacent to the surgical site was effective in achieving a soft mucobuccal fold with diminished tendency for regression in the depth of the vestibule.
