Conventional orthognathic surgery and orthodontic techniques occasionally fail to completely correct the occlusal relationship and esthetic deficits of patients with cleft lip and palate and severe midface deficiency. Prosthodontic rehabilitation is often required to establish adequate occlusion and provide a more proportional facial appearance. This clinical report describes the interdisciplinary management of an adult with complete bilateral cleft lip and palate who was treated with distraction osteogenesis using a rigid external distraction device for maxillary advancement and his prosthodontic rehabilitation with a dual path removable partial overdenture to develop definitive facial and dental esthetic form.
