Leiva Villagra N, Muñoz Domon M, Véliz Méndez S - Case Rep Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: Treatment included maxillary expansion, tooth extraction, and fixed orthodontic, as well as kinesiology and speech therapy treatment.A multidisciplinary approach allowed us to achieve successfully an excellent result for this patient and gave him a harmonic smile and an optimal function without orthognathic surgery.Two years after treatment, occlusion remains stable.

ABSTRACT
The aim of the paper is to present full orthodontic treatment of an operated cleft lip adult patient. Case Report. An 18-year-old patient consulted for severe crowded teeth. He comes from a poor family. At that time he already had four operations (velum, palate, lip, and myringotomy). Treatment included maxillary expansion, tooth extraction, and fixed orthodontic, as well as kinesiology and speech therapy treatment. A multidisciplinary approach allowed us to achieve successfully an excellent result for this patient and gave him a harmonic smile and an optimal function without orthognathic surgery. Two years after treatment, occlusion remains stable.

fig3: Dental cast at the beginning (a) and at the end (b) of the treatment. You can see the dental crowding in the maxilla, with the presence of 1.5 on the hard palate. Negative discrepancy was solved through extractions and slow maxillary expansion.

Mentions: After a two-year treatment with conventional fixed orthodontic, patient's braces were removed and fixed retention was installed in upper and lower arch (Figures 3 and 4).
