Successful treatment of cleft lip and palate requires a multidisciplinary approach from birth to adulthood. This article discusses the problem based diagnosis and treatment approach in an adolescent with a repaired cleft lip and untreated cleft palate. A treatment plan was developed to address the chief complaint of the patient. Maxillary expansion was done with a bonded hyrax screw rather than a quad helix, so as to shorten the pre-surgical treatment time followed by surgical closure of the oronasal fissure.
