Objective: The purpose of the modified repositioning appliance was to overcome the shortcoming of existing design for repositioning protruded premaxilla in a child with bilateral cleft lip and palate. Methods: The basic principles of design were similar to Latham's appliance but the surgical pinning of premaxillary segment was avoided and instead acrylic splint was prepared. Conclusions: This technique avoids any invasive procedure, is useful to reposition protruded premaxillary segment in bilateral cleft lip and palate cases specifically in child who reports late with deciduous dentition.
