Preprosthetic surgery is a part of maxillofacial surgery that restores oral function and facial form rendered deficient through loss or the absence of teeth and associated structures because of disease, trauma, or elective surgery for tumors and other conditions. This is concerned with the surgical modification of the alveolar process and its surrounding structure to enable the fabrication of a well-fitting, esthetic dental prosthesis. There are various techniques of vestibuloplasties, but the mostly used techniques are Kazanjian's and Clark's with split skin graft (SSG) or other grafting. With its better properties in all aspects, bovine collagen has become an alternative to SSG in intraoral grafting. Here, we have elaborated a successfully managed case of short lower anterior vestibule treated by Godwin's technique of vestibuloplasty followed by collagen grafting.
