We report here on a patient with bilateral cleft lip and palate (BCLP) and a missing premaxilla, who underwent dentoalveolar reconstruction of the cleft and premaxillary alveolus using endosteal implants after bone grafting. The patient, whose maxillary incisors and premaxilla were missing, had corticocancellous bone grafting from the iliac crest, followed by excellent bone formation at the anterior alveolus. After the placement of the endosteal implants and the completion of the pre-surgical orthodontic alignment, orthognathic surgery was performed for the restoration of a Class III open bite. After post-operative orthodontic preparation, the final fixed prostheses were completed. This treatment procedure offers an option of dentoalveolar reconstruction for BCLP patients with an excised premaxilla.
