The authors report their experience in the surgical and prosthetic rehabilitation of three patients affected by sequelae of cleft lip and palate, with residual alveolar cleft and absence of maxillary anterior teeth. The patients were treated by means of late secondary bone grafting of the alveolar cleft, followed by the insertion of endosseous titanium plasma-sprayed implants (IMZ). After a further healing period (6-12 months) fixed dental prostheses were constructed. Preliminary results from this series have shown how dental prostheses supported by endosseous implants in grafted alveolar clefts are a very reliable possibility in dental rehabilitation of this malformation.
