DynaCleft and Nasal Elevator Evidence based pre-surgical treatment of cleft lip, cleft palate and nasal deformity

Proven as effective as NAM in pre-surgically approximating unilateral cleft lip and palate.*

Developed in collaboration with Plastic Surgeons, Orthodontists, and Cleft Palate Teams, DynaCleft + NE System gently guides bone and soft tissue while supporting nasal alar cartilage; improve nasal symmetry and better positions a cleft lip and palate for optimal surgical results.

DynaCleft Clinical Benefits*
• Controlled force re-positions prolabium, premaxilla and alveolar segments for best
possible surgical results
• Can be used alone or in conjunction with NAM, or any intra-oral plate
• Easy to apply and manage, increasing parental compliance with treatment
• Significant cost savings compared to NAM

Nasal Elevator Clinical Benefits*
• Improves nasal symmetry
• Lengthens and straightens the columella
• Reduces need for primary nasal surgery
• Reduces length & extent of primary nasal surgery
• Facilitates nasal breathing
• Easy for parents to manage at home
• Can be used with DynaCleft tapes, NAM or any intra-oral plate

Baby and Parent Benefits
• Pre-surgical positioning of lip and palate optimizes cosmetic and functional outcomes
• Easy at-home treatment minimizes clinical visits – no professional adjustments necessary
• Does not interfere with feeding
• Non-invasive treatment maximizes comfort for baby – expands & contracts as baby’s
mouth moves
