This advanced course will describe the unilateral and bilateral cleft nasomaxillary deformity, and use of the pre-surgical neonatal orthopedic treatment known as NasoAlveolar Molding (NAM), to reduce its severity and facilitate primary lip, nose and alveolar surgery. We will  discuss orthopedic and limited orthodontic treatment during mixed dentition in preparation for a secondary alveolar bone graft surgical procedure and to enhance maxillary growth.
