Abstract

Clefts of the lip and palate are congenital anomalies, affecting one in seven hundred live births. They are classified into four major types: cleft lip, cleft palate, unilateral cleft lip and cleft palate, and finally bilateral cleft lip and palate. It is a multidisciplinary treatment planning by Surgeons, Orthodontics and Prosthodontics required for the long-term benefit of this small but challenging group of patients. This case report presents the innovative technique for the Prosthodontic management of an infant with a cleft lip and cleft palate through fabricating a feeding plate.
