A cleft palate whether congenital or acquired is present when an oro-nasal communication exists between palate and nose. Selected cleft patients with gross deficiencies of palatal tissues are best treated prosthodontically, without surgical intervention. This article presents a case report of an edentulous patient with palatal insufficiency successfully rehabilitated with a complete denture along with pharyngeal bulb.
