Preventive and Rehabilitative Treatments in Midline Facial Cleft and Atrial Septal Defect: Case Report

Cut Rita Agustina, Inne Suherna Sasmita

Embryogenesis of the craniofacial region is extremely complex. Significant demands are placed on the coordination of cell separation, migration, and interaction during a brief 4-week period. Any mishap in this intricate program can lead to disastrous consequences and play a role in the etiopathogenesis of craniofacial clefts. Management of patients with congenital or acquired defects of the palate, enabling a connection between the oral cavity and the nose and/or the maxillary sinus, is a challenge to clinicians. Prosthetic rehabilitation strategy such as by using acrylic resin obturator has been used to improve patients aesthetic and speech, and restore their masticatory functions including their swallowing ability. The atrial septal defect is characterized by a defect in the interatrial septum. Cardiac surgeons have to refer surgical patients to a dentist for oral prophylaxis management and to treat any oral infection before conducting a cardiac surgery to prevent infective endocarditis. Dental treatment of patients with atrial septal defect is prioritized in preventive care.
