Abstract

Patients with cleft lip and palate sometimes have a retruded maxilla. Here, we describe the case of a young man in whom crowding of the maxillary teeth and an anteroposterior discrepancy of the maxilla were resolved by premaxillary distraction osteogenesis (DO) using 3 individual intraoral distractors. Our experience in this patient confirms that premaxillary DO with 3 intraoral distractors and preoperative simulation can achieve stable maxillary advancement and arch expansion without impairing velopharyngeal incompetence.
