The oral rehabilitation of patients with cleft lip and palate is a challenge. The aim of this case report was to underline the importance of a sequential interdisciplinary approach to correct functional problems and improve facial esthetics for a patient with unilateral cleft lip and palate. Few clinical reports have described this treatment in a teenager. The patient, a girl, age 12.6 years, had a complete right cleft lip and palate with a Class II molar tendency and a full Class II canine relationship on the right side, and a full Class II molar relationship with a canine Class I on the left side. Transposed, impacted, and anomalously shaped teeth and crowding added to the patient's problems. Treatment included maxillary expansion and maxillary and mandibular extractions. An interdisciplinary approach was necessary to achieve proper occlusion and better esthetics.
