Abstract

A 27-year-old woman with a right-sided cleft lip and palate and a left sided cleft lip and congenitally missing teeth #s12 and 11. After primary treatment of the cleft during childhood and adolescence, the teeth were still missing and a large defect in the alveolar crest remained. Patient’s chief complaint was poor aesthetics in the upper anterior region. This case presentation describes how, with a multidiscipline approach by means of orthodontics, soft tissue grafting and a tooth-supported fixed partial denture the conditions were treated to achieve as good aesthetical result as possible.

Keywords: Cleft Lip and palate, Ridge augmentation, Multidiscipline approach.
