Cleft Palate/Lip and Cosmetic Dentistry: It Can Be Done

This article, regarding cleft lip/palate dental care, may not appeal to everyone, however, there are many patients who can benefit from this type of planning and care.  In fact, it has been interesting to note that we have received calls from those who have been looking for some answers, guidance, and care for years. These photos show the results of orthodontic expansion, maxillary advancement surgery,  dental implants, porcelain veneers, and porcealin crowns, and TMJ treatment utilizing neuromuscular dentistry to find the correct bite for long term stability.  We were able to “quarterback” a team of specialists to assist this young lady in changing her life and giving her a smile that she can be confident with in the real world. Cleft palate/lip cases come with many challenges which sometimes require careful thought and creative or artistic input.  The photos show the retracted views, whereas the full facial smile does not reveal the complexity of the treatment.  We continue to study and use new technology to benefit patients from simple Houston cosmetic dentistry to complex reconstructive and dental  implant care.  The same applies to handling those with bite problems and TMJ pain or clicking and popping joints. If you have any questions regarding cosmetic dentistry, Houston TMJ pain, or Houston dental implants, please call our office as we welcome your questions. Ronald W.
