Özet

Background: Gingivoperiosteoplasty can avoid secondary alveolar bone grafting in up to 60 percent of patients with a cleft. However, preoperative predictors of success have not been characterized. This study reports on the preoperative alveolar segment position most favorable for successful gingivoperiosteoplasty.
