Abstract

Oral submucous fibrosis is a disease very commonly found in southeast Asia . After release of the fibrous bands intraoral defects can be covered by a wide range of flap. Here we have compared Buccal fat pad and Nasolabial flap for the coverage of intraoral defects after release of fibrous bands in oral submucous fibrosis. Both the flaps have their significant advantages and disadvantages. While it has been observed that in certain studies Nasolabial flap has a little edge on buccal fat pad on the intericisal mouth opening. It has been found that there are diasadvantages of intraoral hair growth and extraoral scarring which are not observed when used Buccal fat pad.
