Pediatric Dentist and cleft lip and palate expert Dr. Jeff Karp of the Eastman Dental Center at the University of Rochester Medial Center incorporates the use of the NAM--a nasoalveolar molding appliance—which is a retainer-like device that fits into the babys mouth and later the nose to gradually reduce the size of the gap before the first corrective surgery, anytime after baby reaches 10 pounds. Children who use the NAM likely benefit from enhanced feeding as an infant, a much shorter initial surgery at 4 months of age, a potential for fewer subsequent surgeries, and significantly less scarring around the surgically repaired lip and nose.
