Nasoalveolar Molding ; A Rise In Early Management Of Newborn Patient With Cleft Lip And Palate, Reeya Agrawal, Dr Pallavi Daigavane, Dr Amit Reche

International Arab Journal of Dentistry

Orofacial clefts are one of the most frequent congenital oral and maxillofacial abnormalities. When these babies are roughly three months old, lip rebuilding , also known as cheiloplasty, is a critical concern. In several cleft facilities ,To improve the treatment success, Presurgical Nasoalveolar Molding (NAM) has been included in the therapy protocol. In patients with cleft lip and palate, this technique is routinely used to bring the alveolar segments in to normal alignment and improve nasal symmetry.The advantages of utilising this approach as part of a treatment plan for newborns born with cleft lip and palate will be discussed in …


Infant Molds For Cleft Deformities, Hannah Brunow, Drew Reinbolt, Rhonda Troyer, Christian Miller 2024 The University of Akron

Infant Molds For Cleft Deformities, Hannah Brunow, Drew Reinbolt, Rhonda Troyer, Christian Miller

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

Cleft lip and palate are very common birth defects where the roof of a baby's mouth and lip do not form properly while in the womb. Babies born with cleft lip or palate can undergo surgery after going through a process to make the initial gap smaller through incrementally smaller, retainer-like appliances. We will be trying to find a way to improve the pre-surgery process by implementing 3D printing. We will be performing this research for a craniofacial orthodontist at Akron Children's Hospital. We hope that our success will lead to a decrease in the amount of time spent making …
