Abstract

Dental reconstruction in the cleft space is difficult in some patients with cleft lip and palate because of oronasal fistulas. Most of these patients receive a particle cancellous bone marrow (PCBM) graft to close the alveolar cleft, and secondary bone grafting is also required. Treatment options for the alveolar cleft including fixed or removable prostheses require the preparation of healthy teeth and are associated with functional or social difficulties. Recently, the effectiveness of dental implant treatment for cleft lip and palate patients has been reported. However, there have been few reports on the use of this treatment in bilateral cleft lip and palate patients. We report the case of a patient who had bilateral cleft lip and palate and was missing both lateral incisors. She received dental implant treatment after a PCBM graft and ramus bone onlay grafting (RBOG). A 34-month postoperative course was uneventful.
