Management of the Cleft Dental Gap in the Skeletally Mature Patient
The residual cleft dental gap in the skeletally mature patient is often challenging to reconstruct. This session will review treatment options for management of the cleft dental gap in the skeletally mature patient. Treatment options that will be discussed include bone graft reconstruction of the cleft maxilla/alveolus with cuspid substitution or dental implant placement, modified maxillary osteotomy for closure of the cleft dental gap as well as prosthetic options. The various pros and cons of the aforementioned techniques will be described. The challenges of dental implant placement in the cleft population also will be discussed.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Describe the dental and skeletal consequences of failing to appropriately reconstruct the cleft maxilla/alveolus during the mixed dentition phase.
- List various treatment options for management of the residual maxillary/alveolar cleft defect in the skeletally mature patient.
- Describe the challenges of dental implant placement in the lateral incisor position.
