Summary

Nasoalveolar molding appliances have been shown to be useful in the treatment of cleft lip and palate infants. The NAM appliance helps in reducing the cleft size prior to surgery and helps with columella elongation. Obtaining an impression for an infant puts the infant at risk for airway complications. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of using an intraoral dental scanner in obtaining a digital impression of the cleft palate.
