Abstract

Velopharyngeal incompetence is the functional inability of the soft palate to effect complete seal with the posterior and/or lateral pharyngeal walls. Rehabilitation of velopharyngeal incompetence in cleft palate patients is challenging for both surgical and prosthetic fields. A prosthodontist can best contribute to the total care of the patient with cleft palate by participating all the phases of treatment from birth to the completion of growth. Here, a case report has been presented in which complete denture with a hollow pharyngeal bulb prosthesis has been used for rehabilitation of an edentulous patient having cleft of soft palate.
