TORRES TERAN, Federico et al. Construction of a modified overdenture for patient with cleft lip and palate surgery sequels: case report. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.3, pp.181-184. ISSN 1870-199X.

Rehabilitation of patients suffering from cleft lip and palate surgery sequels is still a challenge for health professionals related to both surgical and prosthetic fields. These patients require a multi-disciplinary treatment able to offer the best possible rehabilitation alternative. The present article presents a case of total rehabilitation of a patient with sequels to cleft lip and palate surgery (loss of vertical dimension, nasal collapse, upper lip defect, upper and lower jaw discrepancies, oro-antral fistulae, absence of upper incisors) by means of a modified over-denture (with absence of endodontic treatment). Esthetic and functional results achieved with this treatment were satisfactory as well as achieved in a short period of time.

Keywords : Cleft lip and palate; prosthetic rehabilitation; modified over-denture.
