Use of nasoalveolar molding appliance to direct growth in newborn patient with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate.
Pediatr Dent 2003 May-Jun; 25(3):253-6PD

Abstract

The alignment of the alveolar segments creates the foundation upon which excellent results of lip and primary nasal surgery are dependent in the repair of the cleft lip and palate patient. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the step-by-step fabrication process of the nasoalveolar molding appliance used to direct growth of the alveolar ridge, lips, and nose in the presurgical treatment of cleft lip and palate. As a result of this appliance, the primary surgical repair of the nose and lip heals under minimal tension, thereby reducing scar formation and improving the esthetic result.
