Abstract

This case evaluated the short term outcome of alveolar ridge augmentation in a unilateral alveolar cleft patient. A 22 year old female patient reported with gaps in her front teeth in 2011. Clinical examination revealed a repaired unilateral cleft of the hard palate (on left side) with a missing 21 and 22. Diagnosis was class II Subdivision with crossbite in 13 region. A non-extraction plan with a quad helix appliance, proximal stripping of lower anteriors. Canine substitution of 23 to replace 22 and prosthetic rehabilitation to replace 21. An alveolar ridge augmentation procedure using PRF (Platelet-rich fibrin) extracted from patient blood using a plasma centrifuge system. The success of grafted bone were evaluated radiologically at 6 months, 12 months postoperatively.
