With an average frequency of 1/800 births in France, labio-maxillo-palatal clefts (LMPC) are among the most frequent congenital malformations. They raise functional, esthetic, psychological and socio-familial problems that must be managed with an interdisciplinary approach. Within the medical team, the dentist must, by way of prosthetic restorations, compensate for certain sequelae and deficiencies. According to the severity of the case and the success of the treatments, the typical restoration can be limited to replacing the missing lateral incisor, or the restoration may require undertaking comprehensive treatments involving a much more specialized arsenal of surgical and prosthetic procedures.
