Nasoalveolar Molding

Nasoalveolar Molding (or NAM) is started soon after birth by a specially trained pediatric dentist to help narrow a wide complete cleft and align the sides of the cleft. The nose is also molded for a more symmetric and improved appearance. This is a labor-intensive process, and not always a possibility for every family. It is best if you can meet with a dentist recommended through the Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Center at Rose Medical Center (303-320-7122) prior to your delivery to see if NAM is recommended to improve the long-term surgical outcome.
