Abstract

Most of Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon used to take free skin graft on the large postoperative mucosal wound which could not be dissolved with primary closure. However, there were many difficulties such as the presence of new scar formation on the donor site, discomforts caused by to the presence of hair and fetid odor intraorally, and especially difficulty of choice of the donor site in the case of young patients. Therefore author tried to primary closure by use of collagen membrane on the mucosal defects caused by the palatal pathologic lesion, mucosal dehiscence followed by the bone graft on the alveolar cleft, and vestibuloplasty on the area of vestibular flattening caused by trauma. Author could induce good healing processes and results without additional scar formations and further discomforts.
