Materials and Methods: CBCT scans of 44 patients (26 males, 18 females; mean age, 14.04 6 3.81 years) with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) were assessed to define dehiscences and fenestrations of the anterior teeth in both cleft and noncleft sides of the UCLP patients and a control group of noncleft patients (51 patients; 21 males, 30 females; mean age, 14.52 6 1.16 years).
