Vestibuloplasty procedure

 # A vestibuloplasty procedure is performed by:
A. Reducing buccal bone from the alveolar ridge with a barrel bur and a handpiece
B. Apically repositioning the muscular and mucosal attachments of the mandible
C. Reflecting the gingiva and using Rongeurs to remove bone from the alveolar crest
D. Using a bone file to smooth rough bony projections
E. Grafting harvested iliac or rib bone onto the alveolar process



The correct answer is B. Apically repositioning the muscular and mucosal attachments of the mandible

Vestibuloplasty is a procedure performed to lengthen the residual ridge and deepen the oral vestibule.

A vestibuloplasty can only be achieved by relocating or repositioning the muscle attachments and mucous membrane covering it into a deeper or more apical position. 

Vestibuloplasties are also accompanied with the use of a mucosal graft or a skin graft.
