This is a picture of the plate and the design can vary depending on whether the cleft is isolated to the palate, or involves one side (unilateral) or both sides (bilateral) of the lip.

Once your baby is used to the plate and is wearing the plate full-time, Dr. Loo will add the nasal “stent” to the plate. The objectives of the stent are to improve the profile and symmetry of the nose on the cleft side. Weekly or bimonthly visits to Dr. Loo’s office would be necessary for incremental adjustments to the stent.
