The maxillary deformities in growing cleft patients could be a hypoplastic maxilla, downward and/or laterally displaced premaxilla in bilateral clefts, wide alveolar cleft and fistula, or combinations of the above deformities. It is a challenge for both orthodontist and surgeon to treat a hypoplastic maxilla with wide alveolar cleft in a growing unilateral or bilateral cleft patient or a downward or laterally displaced premaxilla with wide alveolar cleft and fistula in a growing bilateral cleft patient.
