Cleft lip and palate is most common congenital anomalies of the craniofacial region. Cleft lip and palate is an anomaly that affects several systems and functions which includes the facial growth, dentition, speech, hearing and genetic aspects because of the complex mode of inheritance. Cleft lip and palate forms a part of many syndromicand non-syndromic disorders like the Pierre-Robin sequence, etc. Early intervention provides a positive impact on the development of the infants with clefts. Adequate knowledge of the appliances which are available and the impression procedures which should be followed, leads to a better understanding and coordination of the efforts of the various specialties which are involved in cleft lip and palate care.
