Developed in collaboration with cleft palate teams, DynaCleft is the clinically proven, non-invasive method of presurgically reducing the magnitude of cleft lip and palate for an easier first repair surgery and best possible surgical results.
DynaCleft’s elastic mid-section applies controlled approximation forces to both lip and palate while gently conforming to the baby’s mouth to accommodate feeding, crying, or smiling. The skin-friendly adhesive fabric distributes tension over a large area of skin resulting in less irritation and less frequent change-outs than conventional tape.
Presurgical positioning of lip and palate optimizes cosmetic and functional outcomes
Easy Home Use
Easy at-home treatment minimizes clinical visits – no professional adjustments necessary
Does not interfere with feeding, crying or smiling
Skin-friendly adhesive fabric maximizes comfort for baby by expanding and contracting as baby’s mouth moves

The DynaCleft system is comprised of two components, the DynaCleft® Positioning Strips and the DynaCleft® Nasal Elevator. Each component can be used independently or together, or in conjunction with a NAM or intra-oral plate for the best possible surgical results. See our PRODUCT PAGE for more information.
The DynaCleft system should be used until the baby’s first cleft repair surgery. See our PRODUCT PAGE for more information.
Each DynaCleft strip lasts approximately 1-2 days, although on dry skin it may stay on longer. It is intended to be used continuously (day and night) until surgical cleft lip repair. Some parents find that a strip lasts longer if they apply after feeding.
