- One of the most common birth defects is cleft lip and palate. Infants with cleft lip and palate suffer from difficulty in feeding, due to lack of coordination between lips, tongue, and palate. This condition disrupts several functions including sucking, swallowing, aspiration and therefore inhibits infant's growth. Until now, there are still many patients that haven't received proper standard treatment. This is due to the failure to recognize and minister all aspects of health problems associated with this anomaly, inappropriate treatment time, and improper procedures. This case study reported a 2-week-old infant that was born with a congenital defect of complete unilateral cleft lip and palate. Then, it was planned to fabricate a prosthetic feeding plate to help nurse the infant and guide the development of the cleft before it is ready for surgical reconstruction. The infant is a sensitive patient with high gagging reflexes. The impression was taken from patient and combination of Hotz plate and Kogo type prosthetic feeding plate was fabricated and inserted at the age of 6 weeks old.
