Multiple literature addresses cleft alveolar bone, with little consensus on the preferred surgical technique. Hence, we described a transoral approach for repair of cleft alveolar bone with Z-plasty and using bioactive glass. Study design: Case presentation and surgical technique description. In conclusion, transoral mucosal repair cleft alveolar bone Z-plasty using bioactive glass demonstrated an alternative easy and simple approach for augmentation of unilateral alveolar cleft patients.
