The aim of this study is to present the importance of interdisciplinary treatment approaches for the patients with clefts. In this study, the treatment of four patients with cleft lip and palate were presented. After the completion of fixed orthodontic treatment, proper overjet and overbite relationships were achieved and to obtain the esthetic and functional results, two of the patients had prosthodontic treatment (one of them has removable appliance and another has fixed partial denture). Two of the patients had composite restoration on lateral incisors. Patients with cleft lip and palate require interdisciplinary treatment approaches. Functional occlusion and good dental esthetics can be achieved with a team approach, well-established diagnosis and correct treatment plan.
Key words: Cleft lip and palate, interdisciplinary treatment, esthetic, function.
