Alveolar Bone Graft (ABG) for Children born with Cleft Lip and Palate - Diagnosis

Why might an ABG be required?

One of the functions of the alveolus and gum is to hold teeth in the right place. If there is a gap in the alveolus, the teeth may grow in the wrong position which may be more difficult to treat when older.

The ABG will provide:

  • Bone support for teeth to develop and grow
  • Continuity and better appearance of the gum
  • Better support for the base of the nose
  • Closure of any fistulas (abnormal connections) between the mouth and nose
