Abstract

Distraction osteogenesis (DO) has been used recently to correct cleft in the maxillary region with predictable and stable results. This case report describes a case with the use of DO for rapid movement of tooth-bone segments in patients with clefts of the maxilla involving palate. Both acceptable skeletal and soft tissue relationships with satisfactory occlusion were achieved. After 12 months of postoperative follow-up, the occlusal results were stable with minimal skeletal relapse.

Keywords:
Soft tissue, Intraoral distraction device, Distraction osteogenesis.
