Abstract
Orofacial clefting is the most common congenital deformity. Its treatment is a long drawn process with various challenges. However, successful completion of treatment is highly satisfying not just to the patient but also the team of specialists involved with it. The following article provides an overview of the evolution of cleft treatment over the past century. It briefly describes the changing views of the orthodontic specialty towards the diagnosis and treatment of this deformity over the past century. Its gradual process from the rudimentary treatment protocols of the early 20th century to the holistic approach followed currently.
