Abstract

Cleft lip and palate is the most common congenital defect of the orofacial region, which results in difficulty in feeding, deglutition, and speech. Before the surgical intervention, a feeding appliance is used to restore the palatal cleft and aid in feeding an infant. The impression procedure during the fabrication of a feeding appliance is a crucial step and selection of impression tray and impression material is a challenging task. This article attempts to briefly describe an alternative technique for making impressions in infants with cleft palate.
