Özet

This study aimed to present a new technique for pre-surgical orthopedic treatment of patients with unilateral cleft lip with or without cleft palate (UCL +/- P) by means of modified nostril retainers manufactured using a special mold with soft acrylic or orthodontic acrylics material. Nasal molding with the modified nostril retainer is considerably effective and comfortable for the patient.
